Lee Marshall, voice of Tony the Tiger, RIP


Lee Marshall, who was the voice of Tony the Tiger since 1999, died at 64 of esophageal cancer. He was the second voice of Tony, taking over from the late Thurl Ravenscroft, the cereal's pitchman from 1952 until he was in his 80s. "What a set of pipes," one of Marshall's friend told the LA Times. "Sitting next to him, even a whisper became a roar."
