Donald LaFontaine, the voiceover artist who became famous for recording nearly 5,000 movie trailers passed away on Monday, September 1.
Here's the tribute from his official website:
"Over the past 25 years, LaFontaine cemented his position as the 'King of Voice-overs'. By conservative estimates, he has voiced hundreds of thousands of television and radio spots. At last count, he has worked on nearly 5,000 films. Based on contracts signed, he has the distinction of being perhaps the single busiest actor in the history of the Screen Actors Guild.
