Berlin. The US actor Philip Baker Hall is dead. According to consistent American media reports on Tuesday, he died on Sunday at the age of 90. Hall was known for appearing on the sitcoms “Seinfeld” (1989-1998) and “Modern Family” (2009-2020), among others. Viewers also know his furrowed face from well-known films by director Paul Thomas Anderson such as “Magnolia” (1999) and “Boogie Nights” (1997).

Hall is unforgettable for “Seinfeld” fans for his guest appearance in the episode “The Borrowed Book”: Jerry Seinfeld is said to have not returned a book 20 years ago and paid a fine. Philip Baker Hall plays library crime cop Joe Bookman and delivers a perfect copy of the laid-back hero Joe Friday from the US police series Steel Net: “1971 was my freshman year. Bad year for libraries. Bad year year for books.” Philip Baker Hall was considered one of the few actors in America who became more successful with age.
