    (Strangely missing is his voice acting as "Megabyte" from ReBoot.)


    I was deep in denial when I read about this... I went so far as to call Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

    I asked ,

    • Me: "Hello, I'm not sure if you can give out this type information but I recently read that a Mr. Tony Jay will be laid to rest at your site. I would like to know if this is confirmable?
    • FL: "Which site would that be?"
    • Me: "Hollywood, California."
    • FL: "The last name is spelled?"
    • Me: "J-A-Y"
    • FL: "One moment please..."
    • FL: "I have a listing for Saturday the 19th."
    • Me: "Thank you."



    It doesn't get any more real then that. :cry 

    My deepest condolences go out to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.

    I know I've heard the guy in numerous things the only one I can really remeber in recent memory was he was magneto in x-men legends 1.

    It's a shame he's gone he was a great voice actor and his talent will sorely be missed

    That's truly sad news. I truly appreciated his work, and I feel sad that his work wasn't as widely known as other great actors of his calibre.

    RIP Tony Jay.

    Bummer. And he also voiced Virgil in the Mighty Max cartoon.

    RIP Tony Jay, you'll sorely be missed. :(

    Tony Jay Also voiced several character in the Legacy of Kain and Soul Reaver games namely the Elder God. I miss him already, his voice was something I could feel. He was an amazing talent.

    I also know him mostly as Megabyte and the Elder God from LoK:SR games, his voice was perfect for such roles.

    RiP

    That's very sad :(  . If Mainframe was ever given the chance to finish the ReBoot series, it just wouldn't be the same with someone else as Megabyte. He was a great actor.

    Damn, that really sucks. He was fantastic as Megabyte. I kept hoping for another season/movie too. :(
