    Kruger from Seinfeld tries to kill himself, fails

    Anyone else hear about this? Daniel Von Bargen, the guy best known for playing Mr. Kruger in Seinfeld, and also the police chief in Super Troopers, shot himself and survived. TMZ has the tape of his 911 call, in which he sounds remarkably calm for just blowing a hole in the side of his head.

    It's actually pretty sad -- he has diabetes and has already had a leg amputated, and was supposed to get some toes amputated when he apparently felt like he couldn't live like that anymore. He also lives by himself in an apartment in Cincinnati. Sucks. Diabetes is no joke.

    Damn, it's a shame that his Kruger character on Seinfeld was his most famous role (after only 2 years) after such a large body of work.

    Then again, some folks are just character actors forever.

    Years of Bengals football. Quite sad - ever more sad is that he is originally from Cincinnatti too.. and apparently chose to live there.

    His leg and toes committed suicide before he tried to!!

    Hopefully he'll see this thread and it will cheer him up... and he'll move.

    From this point of view all Brownsfans should be monitored.

    Guess he lost the feets of strength.

    Maybe he can get some help from The Human Fund.

    Sadly, the last update Kruger got on the Schotty situation was that the Jets had given him a two year contract extension.
