A report from Diversity revealed Earl Boen – the original voice of Monkey IslandCaptain LeChuck’s main antagonist – passed away at the age of 81 after being diagnosed with stage four lung cancer late last year.
In addition to starring in the Monkey Island series until 2010, Boen has voiced characters and narrated games such as World of Warcraft, 2 . solid metal gear (Sergei Gurlukovich), Baldur Gate and astronaut (Butcher).
Aside from his long list of VA roles for video games, he is perhaps best known for playing criminal psychologist Dr Peter Silberman from The Terminator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. He also voices cartoon characters like Clifford’s Really Big Movie and Kim Possible and has even appeared in films like Seinfeld and Star Trek.
On behalf of the community at Nintendo Life, we extend our condolences to Earl’s family and friends during this difficult time.
