Don LaFontaine, who was a voiceover master known for his gravel-growl voice, which sounded like he was seven feet tall and had been smoking since birth, who made famous the phrase "In a world where..." and who spent his later years loved and parodied, continuing to voiceover an average of seven trailers a day, died on Monday of a collapsed lung, at the age of 68.

May he rest in peace.
