RIP Glenn Shadix

Glenn Shadix, who we all know as interior decorator / spiritual medium Otho in Beetlejuice passed away on Tuesday. He was 58 years old.

We also know him as the mayor of Halloweentown in The Nightmare Before Christmas, and the funny-looking ape from T-Burt's Planet of the Apes.

Glenn had mobility problems and was in a wheelchair, but died due to blunt force trauma to the head after a fall in his home. How tragic.

The character of Otho, however, will live forever in our hearts. DAY OH! DAAAAY OH!

I am seriously depressed now. R.I.P.

Tonight is Beetlejuice night, in memorial, you know.

I watched Beetlejuice just a few nights ago and just loved his character! I can't believe he's gone. Sad day indeed.

He also played the hilarious suicide service conducting preacher in Heathers...he was great!

Jen said...

It's sad to think I just watched Heathers the other day and now a actor is dead... creepy.

That's awful :( I didn't realise that he was such a Tim Burton regular either. I'll have to rewatch these; he was great in Beetlejuice and he will be sorely missed.
