Making for a tragic start to the week in the entertainment world, director Tony Scott reportedly took his own life in Long Beach, California on Sunday (August 19).
The 68-year-old, who’s best known for helming the hit Tom Cruise film “Top Gun,” is said to have committed suicide by jumping off of the Vincent Thomas bridge.
Reports add that Mr Scott’s body was recovered from the water four hours later by emergency crews, at which time he was immediately pronounced as deceased.
The brother of fellow director Ridley Scott is also behind big films including “Beverly Hills Cop II,” “Days of Thunder,” “Crimson Tide” and “Enemy of the State” while having recently announced that a “Top Gun” sequel was in the works.
Daniel von Bargen–probably best known for his recurring television roles on Seinfeld and Malcolm in the Middle–is reportedly in critical condition following a failed suicide attempt. TMZ has the tape of the actor’s 911 call, which begins with the admission, “I’ve shot myself in the head, and I need help,” and only gets more harrowing from there. According to von Bargen’s labored description of the circumstances surrounding the event, the O Brother, Where Art Thou? actor was meant to go to the hospital today to have several toes amputated due to complications with his diabetes. Tragically, he instead put a .38 Colt to his temple, and by the time the police arrived to the scene, he was unable to open his eyes.
Listen to the haunting recording if you want, but you’re definitely better off remembering him by watching this Mr. Kruger “best of” and letting loose a doleful K-OOGER in support of the actor.

I think this movie should be remade with a higher budget. The characters are good and the plot is interesting. Is it me, or the chick who plays Kaye remind you of Blake Lively? I own NONE of the clips and music. Constructive criticism are most welcome. Music is Pills by The Perishers Enjoy!! And thanks for watching.
