Arkin’s death was confirmed by his sons Matthew, Adam, and Anthony in a family statement on Friday.

He also voiced JD Salinger from 2015 to 2016 in the famous Netflix animated series BoJack Horseman.

The Tarries scored a top-five hit in 1956 by singing The Banana Boat Song, which was later made famous by Harry Belafonte.

Alan Arkin’s acting career began on Broadway when he appeared in the play Enter Laughing in 1963, which gave him a Tony Award for best actor.
