DON LaFONTAINE (1940-2008)

Just read the sad news on Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood Daily (http://www.deadlinehollywooddaily.com/rip-don-lafontaine/) and it's a personal shock for your humble host: Don LaFontaine, nicknamed « The voice of God », the great voice-over artist behind 5000 movie trailers, has died.

Three years ago he made me the honor to accept an interview (http://tattard2.blogspot.com/2008/05/don-lafontaine.html). He was a gentleman, a man with class, and the inventor of the modern trailer.

« When you die, the voice you hear in Heaven is not Don's. It's God trying to sound like Don. » (Ashton Smith)

Don LaFontaine gives now Masterclasses in Heaven.
