I have always held a great respect for movie trailer voice artists, whose job is no doubt one of the must under appreciated in the world of cinema. Though in recent years, there seems to have been a surge of appreciation for these unsung heroes of the movies, with several movies paying tribute to voice actors and voiceover artists having come out. Six years ago, trailer voice legend Don Lafontaine passed away, to my great sadness, and it is with similarly great sadness that I now announce the passing of Hal Douglas – one of the top three trailer voices of all time – at the age of 89. In his honour, here’s a rare on-screen appearance by Douglas in the trailer for Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedian.
