In A World...

Don LaFontaine has died. He was the famous "in a world..." voice over guy.

He died yesterday of complications from a collapsed lung. Like so many people who make money with their voice, Don was a smoker for thirty years - a habit that caught up with him twenty years after he quit. He was 68.

His voice was on movie trailers for years and years but most people actually saw him for this first time in this GEICO spot from a few years back.
