R.I.P. Kirby Morrow

Kirby Morrow, the voice of Michelangelo in Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, unexpectedly died at 47 today. He was also known for providing the voice of Goku in the Ocean Dub of Dragon Ball Z, Trowa in Gundam Wing, Cyclops in X-Men: Evolution, Miroku from InuYasha, and Cole in Ninjago. 2020 has been such a tough year. In live-action television, he was known for playing Captain Dave Kleinman in Stargate. R.I.P. Kirby.

They haven't even revealed the cause of death. It would be nice for his fans to have some kind of closure.

My condolences. I’m not familiar of his works except very few glimpses of Next Mutation.

I’m curious on the cause of death.

That's heartbreaking. He was such a(n) talented actor.

My thoughts are with his loved ones. I hope he will be able to rest in peace.

I’m pretty sure my cousin watched a little bit of The Next Mutation in the late 90s. RIP Kirby Morrow.

I knew him as Miroku from Inuyasha, he gave English dub version of Miroku a lot of personality I felt was up there with his original Japanese V.A. This is truly sad. 47 is way too young to go.

The cause of death was substance abuse.
