'Miracle' Star Michael Mantenuto Dies at 35

'Miracle' Star Michael Mantenuto Dies at 35

"R.I.P to Michael Mantenuto, Miracle is one of my favorite movies ever and we will always remember you as Jack O'Callahan", wrote one fan.

The star - who rose to fame in ice hockey film Miracle - was reportedly found dead in his auto by police in Des Moines, Washington, on Monday morning. After that, Mantenuto joined the military. Col. Guillaume Beaurpere, commander of Mantenuto's army unit, was the one to break the sad news about his passing.

The film followed Jack and several other great hockey players that came from around the United States who were trying to compete for a spot on the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team.

Former Disney star, Michael Mantenuto, 35 has died after fatally shooting himself while sitting in his vehicle on Wednesday. His Hollywood career wasn't as extensive as most actors and was limited as a result.

The American squad went on to take home the gold after defeating Finland in the championship game. The film also starred Kurt Russell.

So Will Smith's coming to Blackpool. Yup
To date, they have released five albums together, but their music career stopped when Will ventured into Hollywood. The second will take place at the Livewire Festival in the United Kingdom on August 27.

A standout on the University of ME hockey team, after college Mantenuto opted to take up acting rather than attempt to enter the NHL.

It was his hockey skills that helped him land the plum role in Miracle.

His time as a sports star didn't last long, however, because only two years after joining the team, Michael was bit with the acting bug. Boston University and the University of New Hampshire wanted him, too. He played Shafe in Dirtbags and later played as small role in the comedy Surfer, Dude (2008).

"I was working on this fishing boat trapping eels before I got cast in this movie, so I felt like I was stepping off a boat and into a dream", Michael said when he started filming Miracle.
