Bad day for celebrity voices

Good thing this doesn’t happen often.

Both Patrick McGoohan and Ricardo Montalbán passed away today.

Although I’ll mostly remember Messrs. McGoohan and Montalbán for their face-acting roles — McGoohan as the title character in Danger Man and The Prisoner; Montalbán as Mr. Roarke on Fantasy Island and as Star Trek‘s “Kha-a-a-a-a-a-n!” — both possessed noteworthy voice credits.

McGoohan played Billy Bones in the 2002 Disney animated feature Treasure Planet (you can read my review of that film here).

Montalbán turned in quite a bit of TV voice work during his golden years, most memorably as Armando Gutierrez on The WB’s Freakazoid! and Señor Senior Sr. on Disney Channel’s Kim Possible.

Both of these talented gentlemen will be missed.
