Douglas Rain, the iconic voice behind HAL-9000 in Stanley
Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, has died at the age
of 90.

Kubrick cast Douglas Rain after watching the 1960 Boards of
Canada documentary Universe as research for his film,
and was so taken with the voice of its narrator, Canadian
Douglas Rain, that he consequently cast him in as the ship's
computer in his 1968 masterpiece.

[God returning from an errand]

"Open the pearly gates, Doug. This isn't funny. It wasn't
funny last time either."

"I'm sorry, God, I can't do that"

here is the docu, not sure if the movie will work
with a non Canadian IP, give it a try
