Daniel von Bargen, whose various roles include George’s Boss, Mr. Kruger, on “Seinfeld,” shot himself in the temple Monday morning in an attempted suicide. After he survived the attempt, he called 911 in a painful plea to get help for his wound.

Von Bargen typically plays comedic roles of authority figures, from the responsibility shunning Mr. Kruger of “Seinfeld,” to the bastard crooked cop Chief Grady of “Super Troopers,” to the smug and demanding Commander Edwin Spangler of “Malcolm in the Middle.”

“I’ve shot myself in the head … and I need help,” Daniel told the 911 operator on Monday morning. When the operator asked if the wound was accidental, von Bargen replied, “I was supposed to go to the hospital and I didn’t want to.” He was depressed about getting surgery for his diabetes. He had already lost one foot to the disease, and with this operation, “They were supposed to amputate at least a few toes.” He said he was depressed about the surgery and decided to shoot himself.

When police arrived, they yelled at Daniel to keep his hands where they could see him. He was then taken to the local hospital and is still in critical condition.
