Lee Thompson Young "Jett Jackson" Dead at 29

By Garrett Godwin

Production stopped on the set of Rizzoli & Isles due to the sudden passing of Lee Thompson Young, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to TMZ.


Lee, who played Boston police detective Frost on the hit TNT procedural, first became known as Disney`s The Famous Jett Jackson, where his character was the star of a popular television series as a secret agent.

Lee saved the world again in a recurring role on CW`s Smallville as Victor Stone/Cyborg, one of the members of the Justice League founded and led by Oliver Queen`s Green Arrow (Justin Hartley) and Superman-in-training Clark Kent (Tom Welling).

Lee Thompson Young was 29 years old.
