Michael Showers, the actor who played Captain John Guidry on HBO’s Treme was found dead, floating in the Mississippi River Wednesday morning. The 45 year old actor was found by a steamboat, floating near New Orleans’ French Quarter.
The cause of death is unknown. His girlfriend had reported him missing on Tuesday after not coming home from a night out in the French Quarter.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
The circumstances of and mystery around Showers’ death are eerily similar to the tone and plot lines of his show.
A sad example of life imitating art.
