Veteran actor Peter Fonda reportedly discovered a dead body in a car on Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard.

The actor -- best remembered for his role in "Easy Rider" and as son of screen legend Henry Fonda and brother of fellow actor Jane -- called 911 on Wednesday after spotting a car parked on the side of the road.

TMZ reports that Fonda got out of his car to check the situation and found a man slumped in the front seat. Police, again according to TMZ, are labeling the death a suicide and say the body had been in the car for at least three days prior to its discovery by Captain America Fonda.

Good for him. It's nice that someone was paying attention to what was going on around him beyond his own nose.
