It is with a great deal of sadness that I report the death of a legend, Don LaFontaine. Don was the voice behind over 5,000 movie trailers and over 350,000 commercials and other projects. He was probably introduced to the masses only as the voice over guy that Geico hired in one of their pro-am duo commercials. Don LaFontaine had become the one which everyone else used as the standard in his industry. It was once said that the deep voice greeting you when you arrive in heaven is not God's voice, but God doing Don LaFontaine's voice. May he rest in peace.
