I found out about this from a friend a week ago, but I'm surprised I haven't heard more about it. Given the list of projects Jay did, I would have been sure we geeks would have made more of a fuss.

I remember him especially as Shere Khan's voice in the Tale Spin series, but given my common use of the name Bob the Guardian on forums and in email addresses, I of course remember him well as the voice of Megabyte in reBoot.

Here's his Wikipedia entry for those of you who don't recognize the name:

That is said, I love his character in Beauty & the Beast, with his voice and the animators gave him the look of one bad arse villain.

Oh my. Magneto in X-Men: Evolution, the Chief from the new Secret Squirrel, and Chairface Chippendale, among many iconic roles. The world of voice-over acting has truly lost an unappreciated genius. :cry:

I remember him from the Disney movies I saw as a kid, like Beauty and the Beast and Hunchback of Notre Dame. And from Reboot. He'll be missed.
