    Voiceover Master Don LaFontaine has died. He was 68.

    LaFontaine, known as the "King of Voiceovers," died Monday afternoon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. LaFontaine's agent, Vanessa Gilbert, tells ET that he passed away following complications from Pneumothorax, the presence of air or gas in the pleural cavity, the result of a collapsed lung. The official cause of death has not yet been released.

    He was great!
    I saw an interview with him years and years ago on 20/20 or some similar TV show. He seemed like a funny and interesting guy.
    I don't think I'd ever noticed that it was always him doing the voiceovers before that, but after I saw him I would always listen for his voice at the movie theater. I'll miss that
