Peter Crombie Dead: ‘Seinfeld’ Actor Was 71

Peter Crombie, the “Seinfeld” actor who played sitcom writer “Crazy” Joe Davola on the show’s fourth season, died Wednesday after an intestinal illness. He was 71.

Crombie’s ex-wife Nadine Kijner confirmed the news on social media.

“It is with shock and extreme sadness that I share my Ex-husband died this morning. Thank you for so many wonderful memories and being such a good man. Fly free into the Un-boundless source of light, Peter. May you be greeted with love by your parents, and Oliver,” Kijner wrote in a statement on Instagram, also posted to Facebook. “So so many people loved you because you were a kind, giving, caring and creative Soul.”

In the popular sitcom, “Crazy” Joe Davola was a psychopath who terrorizes Jerry Seinfeld, even going so far as to stalk him and dress up as a clown to frighten him.

“Jerry, Joe Davola … I know what you said about me, Seinfeld. I know you badmouth me to the execs at NBC, put the kibosh on my deal. Now I’m going to put the kibosh on you,” “Crazy” Joe threatens in a voicemail to Seinfeld in the series. “You know I’ve kiboshed before. And I will kibosh again.”

Aside from his role in “Seinfeld,” Crombie made appearances in such television series as “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Law & Order,” “Walker,” “Texas Ranger” and “NYPD Blue.” He also portrayed Frankenstein’s Creature in the 1997 miniseries “House of Frankenstein.” In film, he worked on “Natural Born Killers,” “The Doors” and “The Blob,” among others.
