'Monk' Star, Stanley Kamel, Dies
Yesterday, the 65-year-old actor Stanley Kamel died in his Hollywood Hills home of a heart attack. In the hit TV show "Monk," there was an episode where Monk and another patient were competing to show who was the most insanely devoted (and stalkerish) patient to Dr. Charles Kroger played by Kamel. A partular running gag is how Monk is incapable of functioning without Kroger and unfortunately, he will have to do just that -- at least in real life. "USA is deeply saddened by the news of Stanley Kamel's passing... He will be sorely missed,” the network said in a statement.
