      Love the world of “Voice Overs”. I have been doing voices at home and to cartoons since I was a little kid. I recognize many voices in different commercials and animated productions. I know I could be used in the industry. Don LaFontaine has one of the best if not the best voice I have ever heard. My Fater has a voice similar to his. Please show me how I can get started in the BIZ!!

      Thanks for sharing! The Don is one of my VO heroes and inspire me to start a career in VO back in ’97. If only I could have met him before he passed on.

      I love Mr. Don LaFontaine, I love his voice best on scary movies. Boy! he used make nervous. So, just imagine being nervous before the movie comes on. Your gonna JUMP out of seat. There will never be another to replace him.

      I am glad to see this video of him. He brought me a lot of joy growing up. He made it fun to go to movies. Anyways, good talent will never be forgotten. I simply appreciate good talent from anyone who beat the odds. Thank for making me smile.

      I have been told for years that I have a voice for radio. I work for Allstate and am always being asked if I am the Allstate guy (Dennis Haysbert). I have always had a knack for public speaking and using my voice so I have a voice coach now and I practice scripts. I listen intently and I respect Don LaFontaines voice so much! He was a giant and a person I look up to!

      So amazing,such a talent…and funny quick witted…I love the story about him being the class cut up and the teacher sends him to the office when his voice changed…that voice became one of the most popular voices ever to be heard,I didn’t know him personally but in the VO world you hear his name all the time and you will almost always hear “in a world” spoken by someone on the mic during a mic check…what a legacy Don left behind…he sure is missed!
