"I fucking love that guy!"
That exclamation in the sci fi classic RoboCop (1987) forever cemented actor Miguel Ferrer into the hearts and minds of geeks everywhere.
Mr. Ferrer, the son of Hollywood legends Jose Ferrer (the Emperor in David Lynch's Dune) and Rosemary Clooney, and first cousin to George Clooney, passed away on January 19. He was 61.
Mr. Ferrer had roles on the big screen and on TV: Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, Miami Vice, Deepstar Six, Twin Peaks, and The Stand to name just a few.
However this blogger really grew to love Mr.Ferrer for his voice over work. His amazingly deep resonant voice gave life to the animated classic Mulan's villan Shan Yu and Aquaman in Superman: The Animated Series. Mr. Ferrer also had a thriving career as a movie trailer announcer, narrating the trailers for such films as The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, U-571, Rent, and Romeo Must Die.
