RIP Don LaFontaine


Don LaFontaine, the voiceover guy for over 5,000 movie trailers and that one Geico commercial, died yesterday. He was 68. Complications arose from a collapsed lung, causing the death of the man with one of the coolest voices ever. He will be missed.

This year has been awful for Hollywood - Heath Ledger, Bernie Mac, Isaac Hayes, Don LaFontaine (and some more that I'm forgetting). Total downer.

all things considered, it seems like a tame year for celebrity deaths when those are the four untimely demises you cite for a downer year.

it's just a mind trick in that these recent events are the ones that are at the forefront of our minds.
