    It's a sad day for the movie industry..
    "Movie voice guy" has died today.


    He's voiced over 5,000 movie trailers, passed away at age 68 due to complications from a collapsed lung.

    The full article with a video interview of him not long before his passing away here:

    That's too bad. Movies won't be the same without his voice. I saw a in-depth report on him and the guy was just insanely wealthy. He was the only one in Hollywood doing the movie trailers. He had a kick-ass sound stage built in his house and he would record everything right there. end serious

    Hopefully someone will come along that can take up the mantle and run with it.....Wait a minute...Does that mean there's a job opening? People always say that I have a radio voice...yeah, yeah...I know they say that when you are ugly as sin and not deemed worth of standing in front of the camera but w/e...

    The good news is they will probably hi-jack the comedian Pablo Fransisco's voice to carry on. He does an awesome impersonation.

    It's uncanny
