Norman Rose, an eclectic actor whose face was less recognizable than his room-filling baritone, which prompted colleagues to dub him "the Voice of God," has died. He was 87. Rose died Friday at his home in Upper Nyack, N.Y., after a brief illness, according to his agent, John J.A. Hossenlopp III. The actor, who actually was the voice of God in Woody Allen's 1975 motion picture, "Love and Death," began performing as a student at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
