Windell Middlebrooks, who co-starred on Body Of Proof and played a diligent delivery guy in a series of ads for Miller High Life, died today at his home in Los Angeles. He was 36. No cause of death has been reported. “It was Windell’s biggest wish that his final scene not be lived on social media,” his family said in a statement confirming the actor’s death. “Further details will be forthcoming once the family members plans have been finalized.”

A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Middlebrooks started out doing TV guest shots in episodes of such series as The Bernie Mac Show, My Name Is Earl, Veronica Mars, Hannah Montana, ER and Parks And Recreation. He later recurred on The Suite Life On Deck and Scrubs before landing a regular gig as Curtis Brumfield on the medical procedural Body Of Proof, which aired from 2011-13 on ABC. He also guested on Cougar Town, Entourage and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and appeared on the 2009 features Enlightened! and Miss March.

He also appears in the Adam Carolla film Rode Hard, which hit theaters Friday, and just two weeks ago booked a guest role on Starz’s upcoming comedy Blunt Talk from Seth MacFarlane and Jonathan Ames.

Middlebrooks, a graduate of UC Irvine, might be best recognized for his pitchman role for Miller High Life in its humorous “Take Back the High Life” campaign. He was the rather in-your-face beer delivery man who chastised imbibers for their incorrect choices then saved the day by leaving his product with them and noting that his quarry now was living the High Life.
