Voice Actor
    (August 26, 1940-September 1, 2008)
    Voiced over 4,000 movie trailers, network promos and commercials
    Nicknamed 'King of the Movie Trailers,' 'Thunder Throat' and 'Voice of God'
    Nearly everyone has heard his voice, but hardly anyone knows his name.
    He sounds like he smokes five packs a day.
    He coined many cheesy movie trailer clichés such as 'in a world where …' and 'nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.'
    He was not picky with his jobs, therefore leading to him voicing trailers for many crappy films.
    He exaggerates the number of voice-over jobs he can do in a day.
    He spawned so many imitators such as Hal Douglas that it's hard to tell who is who.
    He is considered the first and most recognizable of the modern movie trailer voices.
    He was a sound engineer who got his first voice-over role when another person couldn't make it.
    He regreted using overused catchphrases in his work.
    He narrated several 'Jeopardy' categories that are dedicated to him.
    He said he wished more women were chosen to voice movie trailers.
    He poked fun at himself in 'Family Guy,' Rick Dees' radio show and a Geico commercial.
