Comedian John Pinette Dead — ‘Seinfeld’ Actor Dies in Hotel Room
Standup comedian John Pinette — best known for his role as the guy who got mugged in the “Seinfeld” finale — was found dead in his Pittsburgh hotel room Saturday … TMZ has learned.
The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office says Pinette died in his Sheraton Hotel room around 2:30 PM … and foul play is NOT suspected.
According to reports … the medical examiner did not perform an autopsy because Pinette’s personal physician said the actor had been suffering from liver and heart disease.
Pinette had checked into rehab for a prescription pill addiction last August.
He was 50.
