Holy crap, I loved his voice work and didn't expect this. I know him primarily for voice work and Grodd specifically. It blew my mind last February when covering the Ottoman Empire that he was the uncredited yet distinct voice of the documentary. The only cool thing of the dullest chapter between the two preps I teach. A powerful voice and a powerful presence was lost today.

All I can find is natural causes for the cause of death.

Darn shame. Loved his role as Gorilla Grodd in the DCAU.

Liked the fact he got an expanded role in AoS after brief cameos in the Avengers films, definitely a presence on screen.

Belated RIP for Powers Boothe. He made a scary as heck Jim Jones in the 1980 bio movie on the cult leader. Was also great in Red Dawn and Attila.
