Chubby stand-up comedian and hapless carjacking victim from the final episode of "Seinfeld," John Pinette has died. He was 50.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office says Pinette died at a Pittsburgh hotel on Saturday.

Pinette appeared in movies including "The Punisher" and had a trio of stand-up shows released on DVD but was perhaps best known as the portly carjacking victim whose plight lands the "Seinfeld" stars before a judge for failing to help under a "good Samaritan" law.

Agent Nick Nuciforo says Pinette had been working on another stand-up project when he died.

The medical examiner's office says Pinette's death was from natural causes.
