A "Seinfeld" actor is being hospitalized in critical condition after surviving what appears to be a failed suicide attempt. Daniel von Bargen, the actor playing George Costanza's boss Mr. Kruger on the '90s TV series, shot himself in the head on Monday, February 20 morning, but managed to made a 911 call from his Cincinnati apartment afterward.
In the graphic 911 tape obtained by TMZ, the 61-year-old told the dispatcher, "I've shot myself in the head... and I need help." When asked if the incident was accidental, he confessed, "No, I was supposed to go to the hospital today and I didn't want to, so I shot myself but it didn't work." He went on to explain that he suffers from diabetes and added, "They were supposed to amputate at least a few toes."
