John Cygan dead: 'The Commish' actor, Pixar voice talent dies at 63

Metal Gear Solid

The cause of death has not been released but one of Cygan's close friends, Michael Chiklis, went to Twitter to share the unfortunate news and express his love for Cygan.

John Cygan, star of the ABC comedy-drama series The Commish and later a prolific voice actor, died after a long battle with cancer. "Impossible to adequately describe the magnitude of his loss to my family and I". "We started our friendship by playing best friends in The Commish..." He also popped up in episodes of Modern Family, The X-Files, NYPD Blue, Frasier, Becker, The Shield, and Diagnosis Murder.

He also lent his voice to video games such as "Halo" and "Grand Theft Auto". Sometimes art does imitate life.

'Cancel all future press briefings' Trump suggests in Twitter rant
The president's original dismissal letter to Comey indicated that he was being fired for his handling of the Clinton email probe. The other two times Trump said he asked Comey whether he was under investigation were in telephone conversations.

John Cygan is survived by his wife Cathy and his two children. I know this. Heaven just got a lot funnier.

Cygan also gained notoriety for his voiceover work, contributing to Pixar's WALL-E, Up, Inside Out, Cars, Toy Story 3, and Monsters University. It's indeed a rough loss, and Cygan's scope of work certainly can't be denied.

But his part as Solidus Snake in 2001's Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is typically regarded as his most well known video game voice role. Or, of course, watch a few older episodes of The Commish for good measure.
