Movies Justin Mentel [Boston Legal] diest at 27



An actor who appeared on Boston Legal has died in a one-car accident in rural Wisconsin, according to reports.

Justin Mentell, 27, who played attorney Garrett Wells on the ABC show from 2005 to 2006, was found dead Monday near his crashed Jeep, the Associated Press reports.

His car had gone down a steep embankment near Blanchardville, Wis., and hit two trees. Police said Mentell, who was born in Texas and attended high school in Waukegan, Ill., was not wearing a seat belt.

"I'm deeply saddened to hear about Justin Mentell," Boston Legal star William Shatner wrote on Twitter. "There’s no telling how far up the ladder he may have climbed. My sympathies to his family."

Mentell's recent film credits include a role in last summer's G-Force with Nicholas Cage.

Wow. I am currently watching Boston Legal and just recently passed the episodes where he played. Wondered where did he go without any notice or any trace in a story line. That is just weird.

Sad. It is always sad when young lives are taken.
