Actor Daniel von Bargen Dead at 64
Actor Daniel von Bargen — perhaps best known for his work on Seinfeld and Malcolm in the Middle — has died at the age of 64.
Von Bargen passed away over the weekend after a lengthy battle with “a long illness.”
According to reports he was diabetic and had been hospitalized in 2012 for a failed suicide attempt.
Revealed his former agent, “For the past five years, he had been grappling with health issues that precluded his active pursuit of work.”
“We remember him fondly for his easy-going professionalism and dry wit, both of which stood in stark contrast to the driven and near-maniacal roles he often performed with such energy and intensity. He was a joy to work with and we have missed that association since his semi-retirement to Cincinnati.”
“We are learning of this event at the same time as the rest of the industry and are deeply saddened to hear of Daniel’s loss,” his voice-over agents added in a statement to People.
The actor also appeared in films such as O Brother, Where Art Though? and Super Troopers.
