Being a voice-over artist I have have lots of respect for the great ones.

.LOVETTSVILLE, Va. – Legendary voice-over artist Hal Douglas, whose sonorous delivery starred in trailers for thousands of movies and documentaries, has died, his family said Thursday.

Douglas, who was 89, died March 7 at his home in northern Virginia with his wife Ruth and daughter Sarah at his side, the family said in a written statement. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2010.

While Douglas could probably walk down any street in the U.S. unrecognized, his voice was unmistakably a star. He was among the top voice-over artists of a generation, creating a career based on a rich baritone speaking voice that ranged from Biblically epic to theatrically cheesy.

You may not know him by name or by face but you will recognize his voice. Listen to Hal’s Demo Reel.

Despite his lifelong connection to Hollywood, Douglas worked primarily from New York. The last 15 years he had worked from the horse farm he shared with his wife in northern Virginia.

His family said his voice got him work in television, radio and promotional films.
