R.I.P. Don LaFontaine

September 2, 2008 / Posted by:

Don LaFontaine, the King of Voiceovers, passed away in Los Angeles on Monday at the age of 68. Don died of complications relating to a collapsed lung.

Don’s magical voice appeared on over 5,000 movie trailers and 350,000 commercials. You’ve totally heard his voice a million times and you totally loved it. Don’s voice introduced the line “In a world...”

Don was also the “Fox Announcer” on the Family Guy. And of course, you can’t forget his GEICO commercial.

Rest in peace, Don LaFontaine!
