    Per The Guardian:

    Douglas Rain, the Canadian actor best known as the voice of ship’s HAL 9000 computer in the Stanley Kubrick sci-fi epic 2001: A Space Odyssey, has died aged 90. Rain died from natural causes in hospital in Ontario.

    Rain had provided the voiceover for a 1960 Canadian science documentary called Universe, which profoundly impressed Kubrick who, according to Rain, watched it almost 100 times.​

    Of course, 2001: A Space Odyssey was done 50 years ago, way back in 1968. Heck, even 2001 seems like ages ago.

    RIP Mr. Rain.
