LOS ANGELES, March 4 (UPI) -- Daniel von Bargen, who played George Costanza's foolish boss Mr. Kruger on Seinfeld, died Sunday at the age of 64.

"I feel a huge wave of sorrow and relief at the passing of this remarkable man, Dan Von Bargen. I treasure the years when I worked with him at Trinity Rep and in a couple of TV films. I admire his excellent body of work in the movies. And I mourn for the darkness and pain that were his final years. God bless him. He was a hell of a guy," said fellow actor Bob Colonna.


He also starred in RoboCop 3, Basic Instinct, Broken Arrow, Truman, The Majestic, Philadelphia, A Civil Action, O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Super Troopers.

Von Bargen struggled with diabetes and was slated to have two toes removed.

Cincinnati's WLWT reports he died after a long illness.
