That is really sad, I can't even begin to imagine a movie world without his voice.

Ah that's a shame. His voice is just one of those legendary things you take for granted

A real shame. He had a really good sense of humour as well.

Such a shame, he seemed quite down to earth too.

He will be missed

Nooo, nooooo, nooooooooo!!!  The constant narration of my life in my head has his voice... who's it going to be now, Zach freakin' Braff???

Well, seeing as no-one could possibly emulate the great man, the studios should just go in completely the opposite direction and get Joe Pasquale or Yeardley Smith to do all of their voiceovers from now on.

Thats a real shame, Don IS the voice of trailers, they won't be the same without him.
Check out this video of Pablo Franisco talking about 'the previews guy' in his stand-up, cheered me up anyway
