Hal Douglas: Legendary Movie Trailer Voice-Over Artist Dies

In a five-decade career, Hal lent his iconic voice to such movie trailers as PhiladelphiaMeet the ParentsMen in Black and Lethal Weapon, among many, many others. Hal was considered one of the legends in the voice-over industry, along with Don LaFontaine, “the trailer king,” who died in 2008, and Don Morrow.

Hal had a rare on-screen appearance in the trailer for Jerry Seinfeld’s 2002 film Comedian.
