About James McCaffrey

James McCaffrey had a 35-year career in television and film that also included roles in the television shows “Blue Bloods” and “Suits." On the FX drama “Rescue Me,” he portrayed a New York City firefighter killed on Sept. 11 who appears to Denis Leary’s main character, who is also a firefighter, over the series’ seven-season run, which ended in 2011. 

McCaffrey also famously voiced Max Payne, the former NYPD officer who becomes a vigilante after his family is killed, in the video game series of the same name during the early 2000s. “Trained at the Actor’s Studio, he never lost his love for creating characters; however, his good looks often pushed him toward leading man roles,” Elliot wrote in a message. Besides his wife, McCaffrey is survived by his daughter, Tiernan McCaffrey, and other family members.
