Kronk Konks Prop Cop

Some of you may remember Peter Berg in his turn as Dr. Billy Kronk on Chicago Hope. Berg has gone on to directing feature films...

Berg's first feature film directorial outing - Very Bad Things - concerned a bachelor party in which the hired hooker is accidentally killed in the drunken mayhem...

A crew member was killed on the set of The Kingdom, a high-profile Hollywood production starring Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Garner.

Assistant propmaster Nick Papac, 25, died on Saturday after he crashed his all-terrain vehicle on a motorway in Mesa, near Phoenix, Arizona. The road had been closed to the public to allow The Kingdom's crew to film. Shooting had ended when the accident occurred.

Papac crashed his golfcart-like vehicle into an SUV that carried the film's director, Peter Berg. Papac was airlifted to hospital, where he died a few hours later from severe head injuries. No one else was injured in the crash.


Berg is seen here in this dramatic reenactment, airlifting the Assistant propmaster into the emergency room in Phoenix...
