    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.

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

    Dang it, that last bit of music in this video sounds so familiar but I can`t think of what it`s from. Anyone know?

    God, his voice is so amazing...

    o-o

    It`s almost as kickass as Morgan Freeman`s voice.

    "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.

    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.

    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
