Voice Chasers is sad to report that actor Glenn Shadix died Tuesday, September 7th, at the age of 58, after a fall in his Birmingham, Alabama home. According to a statement from his sister, Susan Gagne, "He was having mobility problems, and he was in a wheelchair. It looks like he fell and hit his head in the kitchen, and that's the cause of death."

In a career spanning nearly 30 years, Shadix worked often with director Tim Burton. Shadix played Otho the interior designer in the 1988 classic, Beetlejuice and played Senator Nado in the 2001 remake of Planet of the Apes.

Shadix also worked with Burton on a few voice-over projects, the most notable being Burton's 1993 stop-motion animated film, The Nightmare Before Christmas, in which he played the Mayor of Halloweentown. He also was the voice of Sgt. Glen Dale on Burton's Stainboy, a series of animated shorts.

Other voice roles include Brain and Monsieur Mallah in Teen Titans, Tso Lan in Jackie Chan Adventures, and several guest appearances on animated series like Cow and Chicken, Time Squad, and Duckman.

He retired from acting in 2006.

A memorial service for Glenn Shadix will be held Saturday, September 11th at 2pm at Lakeside Baptist Church (2865 Old Rocky Ridge, Vestavia Hills, Alabama). In his memory, his family requests donations be made to the Theatre Department of the Alabama School of Fine Arts, 1800 Eighth Ave. North, Birmingham, Alabama.
