Upon hearing the news, close friend Don Cheadle had this to say:
“I mean damn, James was the voice of a generation now long gone. No one can ever do what that dude did, I mean March of the Penguins, Invictus? RED? He’ll be forever missed, that’s for sure. BTW have you seen my new Showtime series? It’s good, because there’s titty in it.”
James Caan: “ I remember when I first saw the Great White Hype, and I was like what the fuck is this movie really about?“
