In a World............

 

I was very saddened today to learn of the death of Don Lafontaine, who's voice is famous worldwide. He provided the narration for over 5,000 movie trailers and just as many tv commercials. He's one of those guys that you don't really think about. You just KNOW he's gonna be there whenever you go to the cinema or put on a DVD.

 

In 'the voice', 'Now......one man must fight for justice!'

 

I've heard soo many people mimic that 'movie guy voice', and I've even done it myself. I guess that kinda makes him more famous than a lot of movie stars.

R.I.P Don...you'll be truely missed!!

What a rich-sounding voice!  I knew the voice as soon as I played the video but I didn't know his name, thanks for letting us know Stevie.  RIP Don ~~~Pat  http://journals.aol.co.uk/pm71blackfen/ramblings-from-pat/
