Coming to a heaven near you...

You may not know the name Don LaFontainea, but you've heard his voice; you've memorized his voice, and you've mimicked his voice. He's told you about far away lands, heroes in need, and evil villains. Don LaFontainea is perhaps the most famous voice in film, yet has never starred in a film. If you haven't guessed by now, Don LaFontainea is the famous grizzly voiced baritone of the trailer world. Known as the "King of Voiceovers", he has had over 40 years of voice over work experience, he is know to have recorded for over 5,000 movie trailers, recording up to 80 in a single day. Don passed away on September 1st, 2008. He is survived by his daughters Christine, Skye, and Elyse. 

Rest in peace Don LaFontainea, the film world will miss you.
