2013 can officially eat a dick. With only one day left in the year, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star James Avery passed away from complications of heart surgery at the age of 68. Best known for his role as Uncle Phil, Avery was a classically trained actor who was both a fixture on the small screen as well as a success as a voice actor. He was the voice of Shredder from 1987 – 1996 on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which, whoa. Never would have placed it. Mind blown.
Let’s remember the man for what he did best, throwing DJ Jazzy Jeff out of his mansion like a piece of garbage.
