Don La Fontaine passed away yesterday.

You've probably already heard the news, but if you haven't. You do know who he is. He's voiced 5000+ movie trailers and is famous for "In a world. . . " line.

There will never be a replacement for his unique voice. Such a shame. He was only 68 too.

Here are a couple videos you can watch.

Yeah, I had heard this last night. Its amazing how used to hearing the same movie preview voice we are. It will be very different. You could almost judge the quality of a trailer by if it had him or not...

I've often thought what it would be like to have your voice change and turn out like that. You'd be like "well, I guess what I know what I want to be when I grow up!"

I saw this on the news. Too bad.
