Donald Reignoux, Reese’s voice actor in Malcolm, paid tribute to his “dad” on Twitter.

“He brought a magic to Bryan Cranston’s voice like (very) few manage to do… I admired his work on breaking Bad which will remain one of the most beautiful VF… And what about Malcolm… We will miss you Jean-Louis Faure. Rest in peace.” It is with these words that Donald Reignoux announced on Twitter the disappearance of Jean Louis Fauredubbing actor famous for having been the French voice of Bryan Cranston. A few weeks ago, his death was announced by mistake, but is now confirmed by the sad message of his close colleague: Donald doubled Reese in Malcolm and had invited him to participate in his special show on the dubbing of the series last November.

Jean-Louis Faure, 65, was also the regular voice of Jeffery Wright (Casino Royale, The Hunger Games, The Batman…) and Titus Welliver (The Good Wife, Harry Bosch…). Beginning his career as an actor in the theatre, he began dubbing foreign actors in the late 1970s, for example lending his voice to Arnold Schwarzenegger in the documentary Pumping Iron 2to Mario Van Peebles in Highlander 3 or to Bill Paxton in At the edge of dawn, by Kathryn Bigelow. He has also participated in several films and animated series: we hear him in particular as Harv, Lightning McQueen’s agent in Carsas Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars: The Clone Wars or as a hedgehog in the version ofEmily Jolie released in 2011.
