Oscar-winning screen legend Paul Newman dies aged 83 after battling cancer, his spokeswoman says. Not only Newman was one of the greatest actor of all time and won an Oscar in 1986 for his role in Martin Scorcese's "The Colour of money", but Disney fans will remember also that he was the voice of the Doc Hudson character in "Cars".
I think - but i am not sure - that he already recorded Doc Hudson voice for Cars 2, but, i don't know if he did it for the new short series Cars Toons - that will begin October 27th on Toon Disney - if his character appear in the series.
Paul Newman death is a terrible loss for his family and everybody who remember - and loved him - in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof , The Left Handed Gun...and many more great Hollywood classics.
In the video below, Paul Newman talk about his Cars character. Note: if the video don't works, come back in a few minutes, it will work.
