Agent Dede Binder says Taylor died of cancer on Saturday at his home in Los Angeles.

Taylor got an Emmy nod for his portrayal of a lovable ex-convict surrounded by boisterous Southern belles on “Designing Women” from 1986 to 1993. Then he costarred for four seasons on “Dave’s World.”

Other series included “Buffalo Bill” and “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide.”

His movie roles included a flamboyant window dresser in the 1987 comedy-romance “Mannequin.” He also appeared in “Damien: The Omen Part II.”

Taylor guested on TV series including “Criminal Minds,” ”Hannah Montana” and “The Drew Carey Show.”

Born in Boston, he began his career as a member of Chicago’s Goodman Theatre.
