James Avery, The TV Voice Of Shredder And War Machine, Dies

James Avery Obit War Machine Shredder

 

Many of the obituaries for actor James Avery, who died late Tuesday night at age 68, have focused on his work playing Uncle Phil on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

And while that show was certainly Avery’s most visible role, he spent decades compiling an incredibly impressive voice acting resume, providing the voices for characters including Shredder on the 1980s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series, War Machine/James Rhodes on the 1990s Iron Man and Spider-Man cartoons, and Sir Bryant on The Legend of Prince Valiant.

Avery did guest voice spots on animated shows that are almost certainly familiar to many ComicsAlliance readers, including The Real Ghost Busters, Gargoyles, Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling and Fist of the North Star.

Avery also dabbled in video game voice work, providing a voice for 1998′s Batman & Robin video game.

He died after surgery for an undisclosed illness.
