Stephen Lee, ‘Seinfeld’ and ‘Nash Bridges’ Actor, Dies at 58

Stephen Lee

Stephen Lee, a veteran movie and TV actor with over 100 credits to his name, has died at the age of 58.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Lee passed away on Aug. 14 as a result of a heart attack, according to his actress friend, Lisa Pescia.

One of Lee’s most memorable roles was in the 1997 ‘Seinfeld’ episode titled ‘The Nap,’ in which he played a contractor who can’t seem to make any decisions on his own when Jerry Seinfeld hires him to redo his kitchen cabinets.

Lee also appeared on ‘Nash Bridges’ in 1997, and then reprised his role for six more episodes between 1999 and 2000. The show starred Don Johnson and Cheech Chong as two Inspectors with the San Francisco Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit.

Other works with Lee include guest appearances on ‘Quantum Leap,’ ‘CSI,’ ‘NCIS,’ ‘Bones’ and the movie ‘Burlesque’ starring Christina Aguilera and Cher.

We send our condolences to Lee’s family and friends.
