Actor Isaac Kappy, who had roles in Thor, Breaking Bad and Terminator: Salvation, has died aged 42.

He died at the scene in Bellemont, Arizona after he “forced himself” off a bridge and was struck by a car, according to a statement from Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves (via PEOPLE).

“On May 13, 2019 at 7:26 am, troopers were called to Interstate 40 eastbound at Transwestern Road (milepost 185) for a subject who forced himself off the Transwestern Rd bridge onto Interstate 40,” the statement read.

It continued: “He was then struck by a passing car. The man has been identified as 42-year-old Isaac Kappy of Albuquerque, NM. Mr Kappy died on-scene.”

Graves added that the incident is being investigated as a suicide.

Before his death, Kappy wrote a lengthy post on Instagram, in which he said: “Over the course of the last week, through introspection that should have happened MANY years ago, I have come to some stark revelations about my character. It is a testament to my utter arrogance that these revelations had not come sooner.”


​“You see, I believed myself to be a good guy,” he continued. “I HAVE NOT been a good guy. In fact, I have been a pretty bad guy throughout my life. I have sold drugs. I have tax delinquencies. I have debts. I have abused my body with cigarettes, drugs and alcohol. I have been abusive to people WHO LOVED ME, including my FAMILY.”

“To the MANY people I have acted abusively towards, I am very, very sorry,” he wrote. “To my former friends I have used and betrayed, I am sorry. To those I have deceived, I am sorry, although I must say, in my SHEER ARROGANCE, I did not even realize that I had been a bad actor all along.”

Last year, Kappy was the subject of an LAPD investigation after he allegedly assaulted Paris Jackson by grabbing her by the throat “during a game night party”.
