How surprising and shocking that we've lost another great voiceover artist. Aside from his memorable turn as Cogsworth from BEAUTY AND THE BEAST as well as Jimba in LILO AND STICH, Mr. Stiers has also done two Ghibli dubs: Kamaji in SPIRITED AWAY and Piccolo in PORCO ROSSO. He will indeed be missed.

David Ogden Stiers was one of My Favourite Character Actors....... and hearing about his Death has made this Day....... Memorable for All the wrong Reasons....

Another Cast Member from My Favourite Film ('Beauty and The Beast') is Gone.....

Rest In Peace Mr Stiers. Governer Ratcliffe may not have been a "Popular Man"..... but you will always be Immortal as A Disney Legend.

"Well, if it isn't Baroque, don't fix it."
"But you never can run from nor hide what you've done from the eyes..."
"I prefer to be called 'EVIL GENIUS'!!"

... words do not begin to express how much I loved this man's roles and the amount of character and presence he gave to every performance. Even in overall weak works like Pocahontas, his voice acting was a standout. Kamaji, Jumba, Cogsworth, Solovar...

... Rest in Peace, David Ogden Stiers. Rest well.

R.I.P David, enjoyed your roles in both Beauty & The Beast and the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

At least Cogsworth and Lumiere are together again.

Am I the only one who thinks it would be really cool if David made a cameo in the live action "Beauty and the Beast" that Disney is making?
WillScarlet
said at 7:36 AM on Mon Oct 31 2016
@Michaelsar Since Disney's only motive for making that movie is money, I doubt they'll let any actor near it who isn't a big enough name.

I can definitely see why he was a favourite of Disney's for a very long time, he had an excellent voice for charismatic characters whether they'd be good or bad. Jumba is probably my favourite role of his, I also liked him as Cogsworth, Nicky Flippers, Solovar and The Penguin too. It's a shame he hasn't been in as much as of late.
