A few days ago, my friend Rex Glasini from the Monopoly Men emailed me with the sad news that Don LaFontaine died on Monday 1st of September in Los Angeles.
And if you don’t think you knew LaFontaine, you’re mistaken – his was the voice of the modern movie trailer. The one you tried to knock off but could never quite manage because very few people have what was his naturally deep gravelly voice.
Yep, he was that guy. The King of the Trailers
