Don LaFontaine dies at 68


Recommended Posts

Don died Monday due to a blood clot in his lungs that caused one of his lungs to collapse. He was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. only a week before.

If you don't know who this guy is, it doesn't matter because you've probably all heard his voice at some point (he was on Family Guy and a Geico commercial not too long ago). He was a highly sought-after voice over artist. He narrated many, many, MANY movie trailers and is known as "The Voiceover Master" and "The voice of movie trailers."

We'll all miss you, Don :lol:

In a world where a single man reigned over previews. Where the world could find peace and solace in the voice that would present their future entertainment. Things were good. . .until one day. . .tragedy hit. . .["And in other news, movie trailer voice-over man, Don LaFontaine has died."]. . . The world of movie trailers is about to cease to exist as we know it, unless someone can fill the gaping chasm his death has left. Until the day such a hero can be found, we will continue to mourn and remember the days when Don was the master of the movie trailer. We must always remember. . .

Um, yeah. . .he'll definately be missed. ^_^
