Wow. This was a disappointing headline to wake up to. Movie trailers will, quite literally, NEVER be the same.

Voiceover Master Don LaFontaine Dies at 68

I read that Mr. LaFontaine would record answering machine messages for anyone who asked. For free.

I've always wondered what it was like for him, having a voice that famous, when he was doing business by phone. He could probably have placed some VERY interesting-sounding pizza orders, if he'd wanted to.

RIP to someone who really was larger-than-life. We won't see, or should I say "hear", his like again any time soon.
