In a world without the most recognizable voice in movie trailers, how will the world know which movies to see?

Well, I'll just be damned. His is the most ubiquitous of all the high-profile deaths this year.

*makes yet another fucking tally mark on wall*

i still think the biggest loss this year is Jerry Finn but even more so George Carlin.

RIP Don, we loved your voice :)

That should be written on his tombstone. *pours out a 40*

I can't be the only one who wants Charlie Murphy to take over his job? Anything that man told me to go see, i'd do it.

HOLY SHIIIIIIIIIIIIT! I'm actually freaked about this! The "In a world" dude, gone! This is gonna take some time to adjust to.

Even though he was everywhere, it probably won't make such an impact since so many people can do that voice, ie Pablo Francisco.

Wow! Thats sad.

There can be many an impersonator, but there will never be a "In a world.." moment quite like his again. Lest, of course, you're watching an old movie... sorry... dumb joke

I figured out who he was just a week before his death...
This guy is unreplacable, I think they'll try to find someone whose voice can electronically sound a bit like him.
Like it says on it's website: ''When you die, the voice you hear in heaven isn't Don's. It's God, trying to sound like Don.''
R.I.P Mr Lafontaine
