Daniel von Bargen, a character actor who played George’s apathetic boss on "Seinfeld" among numerous other roles, has died. Von Bargen died Sunday after a long illness, according to Cincinnati TV station WLWT. He was 64.

A Cincinnati, Ohio, native, von Bargen appeared in dozens of TV shows and movies over a decades-long career, including the memorable role of Commandant Edwin Spangler on TV’s "Malcolm In The Middle," but he is perhaps best known as Mr. Kruger, George Costanza’s lazy boss on Season 9 of "Seinfeld."
