Hal Douglas, one of the movie industrys top trailer voiceover artists, died last Friday at the age of 89, reports The New York Times. The Times reports that for years, Douglas was among the three go-to voiceover artists for trailers, the others being Don LaFontaine, who died in 2008 and is credit with coining the much-parodied phrase in a world…, and Don Morrow, who did trailers including A Fistful of Dollars and Titanic. You can see Douglas in a rare on-screen role in the trailer for Jerry Seinfelds documentary Comedian (which you can view below), where he parodies a voiceover artist. The Times has more on Douglas and his work and history, and also profiled him in 2009 as part of a look at the top voices behind big movie trailers.
