A Fashion Dilema

I'm conflicted as to which Hurricane Ike Reporter-In-The-Path-Of-Danger raingear I'd choose. The yellow NBC, red CNN, or blue Weather Channel/LL Bean ($) garb. And don't get me started on the vast choices and styles of headgear I can choose from...”

The Passing of a legend

Thanks to Beau Weaver for sharing. Voiceover Master DON LaFONTAINE died Monday afternoon at 2:10 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles at the age of 68. Don’s agent, Vanessa Gilbert, tells Entertainment Tonight 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. Over the past 25 years, LaFontaine cemented his position as the "King of Voice-overs." Aside from being the preeminent voice in the movie trailer industry…Don has also been the voice of Entertainment Tonight and The Insider, CBS, NBC ABC, Fox and UPN, in addition to TNT, TBS and the Cartoon Network. By conservative estimates, he has voiced hundreds of thousands of television and radio spots, including commercials for Chevrolet, Pontiac, Ford, Budweiser, McDonalds, Coke, and many other corporate sponsors. He recently parodied himself on a series of national television commercials for Geico. At last count, he has worked on nearly 5000 films, including appearances as the in-show announcer for the Screen Actors Guild and Academy Awards. Based on contracts signed, he has the distinction of being perhaps the single busiest actor in the history of SAG. Don is survived by his wife Singer/Actress Nita Whitaker, and three children Christine, Skye and Elyse.
