Best known as Benson in the TV series "Soap" and its spinoff "Benson," and as the voice of Rafiki the shaman mandrill in "The Lion King."  He passed away from cancer.

He was 89.
Truten forever!

Fuck. Benson is one of the first shows I can remember watching as a kid. His constant war with Odo was classic.

Edit: makes me worried about Odo. He's 77.

Ah yea this one hit me a bit.  I really first recall him in Soap and Benson.  And everything else he did after that was just epic.  Lean on me!
