In a world where there's no Don LaFontaine... trailers -- and life in general -- will be just a bit less scary. Or dramatic. Or funny.

The legendary voice over artist who did more than 5,000 movie trailers died today at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA, reportedly as the result of a collapsed lung.

I never met the man, but have always envied those pipes, and that signature read. And from all the cameos I've seen, Don could also poke fun at himself... as in the recent GEICO "In a world..." spot.

Thanks for all the great reads, Don!
