Oh no, Don’s dead!

September 3, 2008

In a world where voiceovers make millions for companies…

In a world where the trailer is often better than the film it sells…

Don LaFontaine, the man who lent his voice to thousands of movie trailers, has died. He was 68.

I saw Don in a documentary once – he was a happy fellow making (sorry, pulling down) a six figure salary for talking about movies. He was being limo’d from one studio to another and he just couldn’t stop chuckling about his life.

Which is perhaps a good place to be.
