Authorities: Actor Committed Suicide In His SoCal Home

An actor who had small roles in more than a dozen television shows was found dead at his home after committing suicide, authorities said Monday.

The body of John Berg, 58, was found Sunday in Van Nuys.

An autopsy found he had toxic levels of carbon monoxide in his system and the cause of death was suicide, said Lt. Fred Corral, a coroner's spokesman.

Berg was a guest star on such crime dramas as "Law & Order," "The Practice" and "NCIS."

He also made appearances in such soap operas as "General Hospital," "Passions," "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless."

"Life was treating him well," said Liz Hanley, Berg's agent.

Along with acting, Berg maintained a political blog in which he wrote that he was "passionate about acting, and even more passionate about leaving the country and the world better" than he found it.
