Rest In Peace, Miguel Ferrer

Miguel Ferrer has passed away at the age of 61, following a battle with cancer. May he rest in peace. I thought I only knew him as the voice of J’onn J’onnz in Justice League: The New Frontier (2008), and as The Weather Man in the infamously bad Justice League of America (1997).

Apparently, he also played a First Officer in Star Trek III: The Search For Spock (1984). According to IMDB, I might have seen him in passing in I Love The 90’s: Part Deux as a commentator, and I Love The 70’s, along with the E! True Hollywood Story: The Curse of Poltergeist, from 2002.

He had also just been revealed as the voice for Deathstroke in Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, which was due to be released later in the year.

I just heard this news. I didn't know him from any of those roles and I am surprisingly unhappy.

He was the first officer aboard the Excelsior as Kirk stole the Enterprise.

That makes three that I know of who died of pancreatic cancer. Richard Hatch being the most recent.
