RIP Robert Loggia

Postby Dacey » December 5th, 2015, 1:31 am

Legendary character actor Robert Loggia passed away at age 85. He didn't do much voice work over the course of his impressive career, but he was the voice of Sykes in Oliver and Company and also played himself a number of times on Family Guy:

Great actor, I couldn't believe how much unlike himself he looked in recent photos. That voice was great, such a shame he didn't do more voice work, but he was always such a solid support in many terrific live-action performances.

Oh man. Really, really sad--I've seen him in several things and always liked him, especially in Oliver--one of my fave Disney films!! His voice matched that incredible design so well. RIP. :(
