"Beetlejuice" Actor Glenn Shadix Dead at 58

Posted: September 8th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Beetlejuice" Actor Glenn Shadix Dead at 58Submit Comment
Actor Glenn Shadix, best known for his role as Otho the interior decorator in Tim Burton's "Beetlejuice," died on Tuesday morning following a fall at his condo. Shadix appeared in more than 70 films and TV shows. He was 58 years old.

"He was having mobility problems, and he was in a wheelchair," said Shadix's sister Susan Gagne. "It looks like he fell and hit his head in the kitchen, and that's the cause of death."

Besides his breakthrough role in "Beetlejuice," Shadix appeared in two more movies for Burton, doing the voice of the mayor in "The Nightmare Before Christmas" in 1993 and playing the orangutan Senator Nado in the 2001 remake of the sci-fi classic "Planet of the Apes." He also had small parts in "Demolition Man," "Heathers," and "Seinfeld."
