    750,000 television spots, 5,000 movie trailers, 1 voice, Don LaFontaine has the most recognizable voice. Here is the legend's story told by none other than the legend himself.

    That guy, we've been listening to this fellow for I know 30 years, and he was top notch.


    He had his throat/vocal chords insured for 5 or 7 million dollars because his voice was his instrument.


    RIP good friend. You brought some really great emphathis sp? to movies, events, shows.

    What I found most amazing from the video is that he took the time to record people's voicemail messages if they emailed him on his website.

      What a nice little video and story. He was beginning to be seen in commercials and it's kind of sad that he didn't have a few more years. Rest In Peace Don.
