‘Thor’ Actor Isaac Kappy Dies in Arizona at Age 42
Actor Isaac Kappy died Monday near Flagstaff, Arizona.
Arizona Department of Public Safety officials told the USA TODAY Network that the 42-year-old actor died after jumping off a bridge onto the highway. Kappy was from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and had small roles in major movies. He played the pet store clerk in the 2011 blockbuster movie “Thor.” He had the role of Barbarossa in the 2009 “Terminator Salvation” and Garfunkel in the 2009 “Fanboys.”
Kappy also was a member of the band Monster Paws. According to his band mate, Nate Santa Maria, Kappy was strong-willed and eccentric, as well as a great producer and engineer.
“I’ll never forget him and his great humor and genuine kindness,” said Santa Maria. “There was nobody like him and there will never be again. He is irreplaceable.”
Before his death, Kappy posted a disturbing message on Instagram captioned, “Beware the man that has nothing to lose, for he has nothing to protect.”
“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,” the lengthy message begins. “It is a testament to my utter ignorance that these revelations had not come sooner. You see, I believed myself to be a good guy. I HAVE NOT been a good guy. In fact, I have been a pretty bad guy throughout my life.”
Kappy opened up about alcohol and drug abuse, offering an apology to Jesus, President Donald Trump and “the MANY people I have acted abusively toward.”
“I hope that the people of the world can utilize my folly in a positive light. That you all may use my mistakes as an example for personal growth,” he concluded. “The lesson has come too late for me, but perhaps it can inspire you.”
