Daniel von Bargen, who played George Costanza's boss Mr. Kruger on "Seinfeld", is in critical condition at an Ohio hospital after an unsuccessful suicide attempt.

The 61-year-old actor called 911 from his Cincinnati apartment after shooting himself in the head. In the call, which was posted on TMZ, he told the operator, "I was supposed to go to the hospital and I didn't want to… they were supposed to amputate at least a few toes," adding that he is diabetic.

Von Bargen also appeared on such shows as "Malcolm in the Middle" and "The X-Files", as well as the movie "Super Troopers" as Chief Grady.
