"Hello, Angels..." John Forsythe of 'Dynasty' and 'Charlie's Angels' dies at age 92



Forsythe, John actor John Forsythe, the voice behind Charlie's Angels and the scheming oil tycoon in Dynasty, has died. He was 92.

His publicist says Forsythe died late Thursday from complications of pneumonia, following a yearlong battle with cancer in Santa Ynez.

Despite his distinguished work in theater and films, Forsythe's greatest fame arose from his role of Blake Carrington in the 1981-89 primetime soap opera Dynasty.

With his full head of silver hair, tanned face and soothing voice, Forsythe as Carrington attracted the ardor of millions of female television viewers.

Forsythe also voiced "Charles Townsend," the heard-but-never-seen leader behind TV's Charlie's Angels from 1976 to 1981. He also voiced Charlie in the 2000 and 2003 movie versions.
