RIP Charles Napier

Not as big a name as Steve Jobs, but a part of my childhood, having appeared as Duke Philips in the Critic.

Also, he was apparently Lou Ferrigno's voice in the Incredible Hulk!  And the man had an awesome voice.

Oh wow, I totally forgot he was Duke Phyllips. Loved that character. Hilarious on the DVD commentary, too. He talked about the fact that it wasn't until he was actually at the studio recording his lines that it dawned on him that it was an animated show.

It sucks that the picture of him that article has is from One Eyed Monster, a really lousy movie.

Didn't they say he showed up dressed in the clothes he thought Duke would wear?

Weirdly enough, as much as I love and praise (and would always vote for) Duke, I will always remember him as one of the two unlucky guards in Silence of the Lambs. Definite RIP here, he was always cool to see/hear onscreen.
