Keith David is probably going to be the next "Voice". He`s the guy that does all the U.S. NAVY commercials and also took over for Paul Winfield from "City Confidential". He has a very smooth authoritative voice like LaFontaine

Don Lafontaine, Morgan Freeman, James Earl Jones, and Sean Connery, are the legends of voice in my book. it will be sad when they go :(

Somehow I think Sean Connery will be next.

"The words dictate to me the way they want to be read"
So... he hears voice in his head that tell him what to do?

> music in this video sounds so familiar
Pretty sure its a Costner movie theme but not absolutely sure, I`d be guessing Postman or Dances with Wolves? Or the most recent one.

I also think whoever write the caption has got their maths a bit wrong... 750,000 div 25 years is 82 TV spots EVERY DAY 365 days a year. Unlikely.

HE DIED?! :-/ The fate of all movie trailer voice-overs rests squarely on the shoulders of Hal Douglas.

That one chick in the video was right. Nearly everyone else just tries to emulate his voice. Heck, it`s half of Pablo Francisco`s act.
