Mako's last leading role was in the 2005 film ''Cages''. The last work he contributed to was the animated movie ''WesternAnimation/{{TMNT}}'', which he recorded the voiced role for mere days before his death. The finished film was later dedicated to his memory. An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' also had the send-off, 'In Honour Of Mako', and gave a major character in its [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra sequel series]] his name. Mako has a motion picture star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7095 Hollywood Blvd.
