Eddie Albert and the Turtle
Though Eddie Albert didn't seem to play malicious characters, he reminded me of the Turtle mayor in Rango, right.
So I looked the actor up, and sure enough, he was dead, but not long dead, dying only in 2005. What's more, he was 99 years old!
In the earlier part of the film the turtle seems more wise and avuncular, which I associate with Albert's characterizations. His voice seemed to fit too--an uncanny illusion.
As his role became more ominous, it didn't matter, for I have seen Albert in more ominous TV shows, such as a chilling Outer Limits episode.
As time goes on, we will mistake characters more, such as I did. Phenotypes will become reincarnate.
