Movie trailer voice Hal Douglas dies at 89

Hal Douglas, known by his voice-over work in movie trailers, died Friday at age 89 from complications of pancreatic cancer, according to The New York Times.

Douglas voiced trailers for movies ranging from the classic drama Forrest Gump to the silly Meet the Parents and worked up until just about two years ago. He was one of the movie industry’s number one choices for voice-overs, and was able to make his living in New York – his preferred city – instead of  Hollywood.

He died in his Lovettsville, Va., home.
