"LaFontaine, known as the "King of Voiceovers," died Monday afternoon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. LaFontaine's agent, Vanessa Gilbert, tells ET that he passed away following complications from Pneumothorax, the presence of air or gas in the pleural cavity, the result of a collapsed lung. The official cause of death has not yet been released."

Guy had one of the coolest voices. Died at 68.

Youtube video that covers much of his career.

Wow, truly a movie commercial and preview legend. I don't think previews will ever be the same...

I can't believe he died.

I actually have an audio recording he did for my friend of the Army's NCO Creed, there are only 8 people who have that recording.

I don't think there is anyone who can fill his shoes.

Greatest. Voice. Ever.

Also, probably one of the most recognized even though a lot of people don't know it.
