His death was announced by his agents at Nicolosi & Co. speaking on behalf of his wife, actress Patricia Dunnock.

In a statement reported by Deadline, Dunnock said “As Ned would say, he was attacked by two very rare assassins — cholangiocarcinoma and ocular melanoma. Over the course of two years, he bravely fought the cancers in private while continuing to work in show business to ensure that his medical coverage paid for himself and his family.”

Eisenberg also cut his teeth on Broadway in 2000’s The Green Bird, 2006’s Awake and Sing!, Golden Boy, Rocky and Six Degrees of Separation.

He is surived by his loving wife Patricia and son, Lino Eisenberg.
