It’s often said in this business that it’s not the sound of your voice, but what you do with it that makes you a sought-after and successful voice talent. To me, no one epitomized that truth more than a man who had more personality in his voice, and in life, than the icon we lost this week, Hal Douglas. A legend in voice trailers and commercials for decades, Douglas passed away at the age of 89.
If there’s ever a Mount Rushmore built for voice actors, you have to put Hal Douglas right between Don LaFontaine and Mel Blanc.
