In a world... where people live... and DIE.

I'm guessing the 'complications' with his lung was smoking?

Oh no ... whoa.

I really like one of the comments down at the bottom of the article, too:
Quote
In A World Where Strong Voices Were Few and Far Between...One Man Rose...Spoke To Us...And Convinced Us to Watch Movies...One Man...One Desire...And...The VOICE...Don LaFontaine...Was...Movie Trailer Voiceover Guy....

"In a world where that crazy announcer guy kicks the bucket...."




Sorry, couldn't resist...RIP Mr. LaFontaine, the movies will be a little more sucky without you announcing them.  :-\

Man a lot of Famous people have been dying lately, this will not top the recent death of George Carlin, but it's still a shame. Who will give me a poor idea of a action movie's plot now?

Now who's going to sell me the obviously flawed plots of movies, like Terminator? *Tear*

In a world...where the old have gone

*Camera Cuts to a coffin*

In a world, where bad movies don't seem interesting anymore...

"So like, there are these robots from the future, and they are trying to kill this girl, but like a robot from the furture is like...ummm..."

"Shut up."


A new hope must rise...

"We can't go on like this, at this rate, Califonia will have to sell cheap trinket's to go on! We can';t get away with any more Romance films, but we need someone who can brainwash the mases

*Heart beat, Heart beat*

"Announcer guy, RELOADED, Starring...ME."

*Gunshots, fade to black, heart beat*

Heh, sorry, I couldn't resist making one of these as well.

May the awesome announcer guy rest in peace.

Sad. I enjoyed his inflection and movie trailers will never be the same.

This sucks, now so many people won't be able to here that iconic announcer voice.

Wonder if the producers will try and hire someone with a similar voice?
