Joseph Wayne Miller, who played Salami Sam in the classic '90s Disney movie "Heavyweights", has passed away at the age of 36, TMZ reports.

The actor's mother, Patricia, told TMZ that her son died in his sleep on Tuesday in Chicago. His girlfriend discovered his body. Patricia said Miller suffered from sleep apnea, which may have been a condition that contributed to his death. He worked alongside Ben Stiller and Kenan Thompson, who also starred in the 1995 comedy-drama film.

Further information about Miller was not immediately known, but Apatow issued a statement Wednesday to the New York Post's Page Six. So sad. So young. "Rest in Peace Joe".

Fans of 90s pop culture will recognize Miller from his role as Salami Sam in the hit family film Heavyweights.
