This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
This is terribly sad.
Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney has passed away.
He was 93 years old and reportedly passed earlier today. He was apparently ill for quite some time. We'll bring more details as they come.
After making his first film appearance in 1926, he went on to have a long and successful career that made him an icon in the acting business.
At the time of his passing, he was reportedly working on the film The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
