Don LaFontain voiceover master

The entertainment industry and LaFontaine family lost a legend yesterday. Movie trailer and commercial voiceover master, Don LaFontaine died yesterday at the age of 68.

 

He died from complications from pneumothorax, a collapsed lung that causes air to build in the pleural cavity, his agent, Vanessa Gilbert, told Entertainment Tonight. –  You can read more about this on CNN.

I’ve always been a fan of his work and think that if it wasn’t for his talents box-office numbers and movie sales would never be near what they are today!

“My philosophy is that you have to really believe what you’re reading, even if you think the film’s a piece of junk,” he told Swindle magazine. “Even the worst picture is someone’s favorite film, and that someone is the fan I am always talking to.”
