By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Philip Bosco, the Tony Award-winning actor known for his roles in films "Working Girl" and "The Savages," has died. He was 88.

The actor's daughter, Celia Bosco, said her father died Monday night at his home in Haworth, New Jersey. She says her father had complications with dementia, which is commonly caused by Alzheimer's disease.

Bosco was a Broadway veteran who won a Tony Award in 1989 for best actor for his role as the head of an opera company in the comedy "Lend Me a Tenor." He received nominations for his performances in "The Rape of the Belt," ''Heartbreak House," ''You Never Can Tell" and "Moon Over Buffalo."

Bosco also starred in the production "Twelve Angry Men."

Before acting, Bosco worked in a carnival as a trailer truck driver.
