Stanley Kamel, 'Monk' psychiatrist, dead at 65

http://www.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/TV/0....ap/index.html

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Stanley Kamel, who played Adrian Monk's long-suffering psychiatrist on the TV detective show "Monk," has died. He was 65.

Stanley Kamel had roles on a number of shows, most recently "Monk."

Kamel was found dead Tuesday of a heart attack in his Hollywood Hills home by his agents, publicist Cynthia Snyder said.

Kamel, born on January 1, 1943, in New Brunswick, New Jersey, had a nearly four-decade acting career, much of it on television. He had a recurring role as an unscrupulous psychiatrist, Dr. Graham Lester, in the 1995 television series "Murder One," and other recurring roles on "Days of Our Lives," "Melrose Place" and "Beverly Hills 90210," as well as smaller roles on many other shows.

Kamel began acting off-Broadway and got his first television break playing Eric Peters on "Days of Our Lives" in the 1970s. He appeared in several movies.

For several years, he portrayed Dr. Charles Kroger on the USA Network series "Monk." As Kroger, he dispensed advice during weekly therapy sessions to Monk (Tony Shalhoub), a brilliant but neurotic private detective with obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Personally, I think all deaths should be reported there. Kamel could be in TV and Movies and DVD.

Agreed. For many other deaths it is hard to decide which forum is most appropriate.

RIP to a great actor, loved seeing him pop up on so many things over the last 36 years.

He was a fine actor whose name I never knew but enjoyed him in anything he did, especially Monk. RIP
