There's been much talk of who will fill the void of our late friend, Don LaFontaine. Variety.com has speculated that it may be time for women to come to the fore and start kicking some butt in this arena.
I'm all for that and am also interested to hear which new male voices will rise to the occasion in this time of flux.
While honouring Don and his legacy is paramount, he would want us to embrace this change as he himself supported the idea of women making strides in this niche and also granted permission for others to take his place upon his death ("Just wait until I die", as he often said when referring to others working in trailers).
I too wrote an article that followed up on what Variety.com was saying. You may have read it, and if not, just Google "In A World Where Women Narrate Movie Trailers". The buzz coming from the ladies who commented is contagious and there is a lot of support from male voice actors, too.
Are we ready?
