The cause of death has been reported as accidental as it seems that his car rolled back onto him when he got out of his car. Nobody knows why he got out of his car, though.

Anton has been in other notable movies, as well, including Fright Night, Like Crazy, Alpha Dog and Terminator Salvation. Rest in peace and thank you for the movies, Anton.
