Fans and TV critics are mourning the loss of “Frasier” star John Mahoney, who died Sunday at 77.

Cameron Crowe, who directed Mahoney in 1989’s “Say Anything” said “Here’s to you, John Mahoney! You make the unforgettable look easy.”

“Say Anything” co-star John Cusack tweeted to say he was a “great actor” and a “lovely kind human.”

“Any time you saw him you left feeling better – RIP John,” Cusack wrote on Monday.

“I’ve not known a kinder man nor more brilliant actor,” tweeted casting director Jeff Greenberg. “We were all blessed to have spent 11 glorious years together.”

“I am gutted. To me, he will always be Diane Court’s dad,” said EW executive editor Carla Sosenko. “To my parents, he will always be acclaimed stage actor John Mahoney.”

Mahoney was nominated twice for an Emmy Award for his role as Martin Crane on “Frasier,” and twice again at the Golden Globes.
