In a world with no Don LaFontaine…
Don LaFontaine, who has done the voice-over for almost every movie in the last quarter-century, has died…
That guy could make the stupidest movie sound great. Looking back, perhaps this is not an admirable skill, since it meant I ended up watching more terrible movies. Still – that was his job and he was the best.
I wonder if he will be replaced with another single voice, or if the movie-trailer voiceover business will get spread around a bit.
Farewell Don, you will be missed.
