Closing Credits: Don LaFontaine

DonLaFontaine.jpgDon LaFontaine, the man who is known for his voice alone, died on Monday. He's known for that voice of his because he is voiceover man.

For the past twenty-five years his voice has covered many a trailer and advert, and he's become known as the "King of Voiceovers".

You'd recognise him as soon as you hear the words "In a World..." and so on. His voice has graced so many trailers it's incredible.

Don LaFontaine passed away at the age of sixty-eight having a hugely busy and successful career behind him. He's worked on almost five thousand films, worked on Entertainment Tonight and The Inisder, for all the major U.S. television channels, thousands of television and radio adverts, and according to the story on ETOnline, he's probably the busiest single actor in the history of the Screen Actors Guild.

In a world with voiceovers, Don LaFontaine will surely be missed.
