    The father of noted voice actress Cree Summer died this past Sunday (April 3) at the age of 84 according to The Hollywood Reporter:

    Don Francks was a noted actor and jazz musician in his own right and even did some voice work himself (perhaps his best-known voice acting role was the astronaut who's killed off by the Locnar within the first few minutes of the cult classic Heavy Metal).

    RIP Iron Buffalo. :(

    Yeah I thought he did a good job voicing Sabretooth in the X-men material, he will be missed.

    He was also the voice of Dr. Claw on some episodes of Inspector Gadget (where his daughter voiced Penny), apparently when Frank Welker wasn't available.
