A retired Southeastern Oklahoma State University professor turned professional actor died Friday of cancer. Dennis Letts was 73 years old.

Letts taught English at the university for 30 years, and then turned to acting staring in “Where The Heart Is,” the movie adaptation of the novel his wife wrote.

Most recently, he made his Broadway debut in his son's production of "August: Osage County."

Letts is survived by his wife and two sons.
