Lamont Bentley


Lamont Bentley, who was a regular in the 1990s sitcom "Moesha" and appeared frequently in television and movies, was killed in a car crash, his manager confirmed Wednesday.

Bentley died Tuesday night when his vehicle plunged off the San Diego Freeway, Susan Ferris told The Associated Press.

"He went off the embankment and was ejected," she said.

He was the only person in the vehicle.

Bentley, 31, played Hakeem Campbell, the longtime friend of Moesha Mitchell in the UPN sitcom "Moesha."

He was returning from a screening for an independent short film entitled "Shards" when he was killed.

"This is a big year for him," Ferris said. "We were very excited because he was coming into his own. It's like a candle being snuffed right out."

Bentley had appeared in a number of films, including "The Wash," "The Breaks" and "Tales From the Hood." He played rap artist Tupac Shakur in "Too Legit: The MC Hammer Story."

He also made guest appearances in such TV shows as "The Parkers," "The Proud Family," "NYPD Blue" and "Clueless."

The Milwaukee native and father of two daughters began his career after moving to Los Angeles with his mother, an aspiring singer.
