This topic  is in memory of Tony Jay, the voice of Lord Dregg from the Red Sky original TMNT series (95 & 96 seasons).  

Tony passed away on August 13th, 2006.   Truely an actor that is missed.

Here's the news story from that week...

Veteran Royal Shakespeare Actor and Voice artist Tony Jay
having been in critical condition following micro surgery
at Cedar Sinai Hospital, in April, loses long fight to recover.
In April 2006, Tony Jay was admitted to Cedar Sinai Hospital
 for micro surgery to remove a non cancerous tumor
from his lungs. In recovery his vital signs became critical and since April through strength and determination he began to recover both his breathing and mobility. Although it was a possibility that he might have been able to return home, in the next few months, on Sunday Tony Jay was unable to realize that dream. He is survived by his wife Marta and his son Adam, who follows in his fathers footsteps in the field of Acting.

Tony Jay leaves a vast legacy of work in television, voice and film, with appearances with Arnold Schwartzenegger, Danny Devito, Woody Allen, Karl Malden, Kim Bassinger, Dan Ackroyd to name a few. His television performances include Beauty and the Beast (as the arch-villain Paracelcus), Golden Girls, Murphy Brown, Hunter, Bob Newhart, Night Court, Star Trek, Lois and Clark, Sisters and recently Burning Zone. His work in voice acting includes Mighty Max, Bruno the Kid, Tale Spin, Savage Dragon, Reboot and many more. His role as Judge Frollo in Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame", a role that has been been critically acclaimed as "probably the best Disney villain to date".

His recent self produced CD "Poets on Broadway" revealed his passion for the Broadway musical with his voice guiding the lyrics of some of the greatest Broadway songs, accompanied by his own arrangements, played by himself.

He will be laid to rest on Saturday, August 19, 2006 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park Hollywood, California.
