"90210" Actor Found Dead

4/9/2008 5:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: According to Kamel's rep, the actor had a heart attack.

Actor Stanley Kamel was found dead in his Hollywood home.

Kamel, who had been starring on "Monk," also played mafioso Tony Marchette, the father of Rebecca Gayheart's character Antonia, on "90210." He ordered a hit to be put out on Dylan, but ended up killing his daughter instead.

L.A. Fire officials tell TMZ they responded to a 911 call from Kamel's Hollywood Hills home yesterday just before 4:00 PM. They tell us their investigation is still "incomplete."

A cause of death at this time is unknown, but the L.A. County Coroner tells us they don't have the case. According to AccessHollywood.com, the actor was found by his longtime agents.

This is so sad. Always enjoyed him on Monk. Will be interesting to find out the cause of death. He added a lot to the show.
Wonder how they will write it in and how Monk will have to get use to a new therapist.

I am sorry to hear of the death of a very talented man. Also I am sorry to see that being first means you have nothing whatsoever to say that has any relevance. Quick finger on the key and and no doubt a fist up your ass.

It just occurred to me that we (people) cannot even seem to be kind when someone dies, which, although it happens many times every day of the year, is really a huge thing. Although it's sad to think so, perhaps someone in this man's family or one of his friends reads this stuff. I'm just saying. Anyway, I don't know this man's work, but my husband is a fan. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at his passing.
