RIP Charles Napier (1936-2011)
The Washington Post reports that actor Charles Napier passed away on 10/5 at the age of 75 in Bakersfield, CA. He played a number of live action roles throughout the last few decades (usually playing gruff authority figures, such as General Hawk in Austin Powers), but he also was known for his voiceover work, and had a distinctive low voice. Animation work includes such animated series as The Critic (Duke Phillips), The Simpsons (guest spots, such as the warden and Officer Krackney), Squidbillies (Sheriff), Men in Black: The Series (Zed), God, The Devil, and Bob, The Batman (Killgore Steed), and more. Speaking as a fan of his work, he will be missed.
