Douglas Rain, dead at 90


Douglas Rain died Sunday, November 12.  I won’t be one of those that copies a eulogy so go here for that.

Rains performance was pitch perfect for that film. I am still amazed when viewing 2001 how chilling HAL is as a sympathetic villian. Whenever I see an ad for Alexa, or remind myself not to enable Siri, I hear his voice.

  1. I never knew his name, but as soon as I saw the image of the HAL 9000 interface, I knew who he was. Yes, he was very chilling in his monotone as HAL. One of the great performances in that epic film.
