    Never heard of him.

    Wat?? Never heard of Norm Macdonald?

    Did you ever watch Saturday Night Live in the 90s?

    Have you seen The Orville? He was the voice of Yaphit. I heard they recently finished filming season 3 of The Orville, so Norm Macdonald's voice is there.

    I feel like he also did a lot of bit parts here & there in various movies & other shows..

    Can't wait for the Orville, watching through the first two seasons again with my daughter to get ready. RIP Yaphit.

    Yes, he just passed away a few days ago. Apparently he had cancer.

    Rats. The last time I saw him in anything was the TV series, "The Middle."
    He played a reoccuring character. He didn't look so great but, then
    again, his character was not really supposed to I don't think.

    The next legal battle in media will be voices of deceased actors. Actors, by the nature of their craft, have lots of recorded samples of their voice.

    The years he did Weekend Update should be enough to feed any sort of text to speech generator in his voice.

    I'd heard that Majel Roddenberry (who played Lwaxanna Troi and provided the voice for the ship computer) made phonetic recordings of her voice before she died, so that the producers could continue using her voice to make speech.
