    Tony Jay deceased

    Tony Jay, the voice-actor who did the Lou Tenant in Fallout (as well as the narration work and mutant general of Brotherhood of Steel), has passed on:
    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.

    (...)

    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".
    Not to mention he did an awesome job as the voice of the Transcendent One in Planescape Torment.

    Tony Jay, we salute you.

    He was kinda wasted on the undead knight in Icewind Dale.

    I've used his voice in music!
    Game help can be found in my Fallout guides.

    Legacy of Kain - I considered his VO work to be the best ever from this series. He WAS the deep, dark voice of the Elder Gods. He was also considered to be one of the best narrators ever (including one good Teen Titans episode), though not even he could save FOS.

    Truly a sad day in gaming.

    Guess where Fallout stands?

    I cant forget that voice...so well done.

    I thank him for his labor unfortunately too late that I learned his name.

    Sincerely,
    The Vault Dweller
    I wouldn't drink the water if I were you...
