John Berg, a character actor you may recognize (we didn't) from shows like House M.D., NCIS, and Monk, has been found dead at his home in Van Nuys, from what authorities are saying was self-administered carbon monoxide poisoning. "'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." Can we just skip ahead to summer now? [AP, IMDB]
