Justin Mentell (Boston Legal) dies in car accident

Justin Mentell has died in a car crash, aged 27. The former Boston Legal star was believed not to have been wearing a seatbelt when his Jeep came off the road near Madison, Wi and rolled down an embankment, smashing into two trees on Monday morning. According to MTV News, Mentell was thrown from the car and later died at the scene. Chief deputy John Pepper told reporters: "It looks like [Mentell] had been there for several hours. There are a lot of trees in that area, so if you were driving on 39, you wouldn't be able to see the vehicle. (more)

I kind of remember him, but he was a very unmemorable character. I think he was in the same season as the black girl Ryan Michelle Bathe and they both mysteriously disappeared with no explanation. Sad that he died, but I don't think anyone in this forum really cares or recalls him.

I watched Boston Legal and seeing a pic of him, I couldn't recall him ever being on the show... too bad he passed away regardless.

Wow, I just watched a rerun of this show the other day and thought "whatever happened to this guy".

I remember him.
They never really gave his character a chance to develop. It's like they threw the two of them in there and gave them nothing to work with.

Regardless, it's a tragic story.
