Actor Peter Fonda has discovered a dead body in a car and Los Angeles police are investigating the death.

Sergeant Carlton Cook at the West Los Angeles Community Police Station said the Easy Rider actor called 911 on Wednesday after he spotted a car parked on the side of Sunset Boulevard.

Sgt Cook said Fonda, 70, is absolutely not a suspect but did not have any more details.

The call was first reported by TMZ, which said Fonda got out of his car and found the man slumped over in the front seat.

Fonda is best known for his role in the 1969 film Easy Rider as sex-and-drugs loving biker Captain America.

Other film credits include Race With the Devil, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, and 3:10 to Yuma.
