Too bad. A guy that didn't take himself too seriously either...Wasn't he the main guy on Fox?

Loved his voice for YEARS... such a shame . Only a handful need apply for what he did. I can think of only a few right now. This guy was SO good.. usually ONE TAKE. If you think it's easy try reading a soup can or a cereal box. I'm serious, put different inflection into it and perhaps a comma . It's NOT as easy as he made it sound. That's why he was the BEST!!!

That's really too bad. He was amazing at what he did, I can't remember a movie preview without him. I loved him on the Geico commercial, too. Nobody will ever be able to replace him. Prayers for his family.

Uh, TMZ, the man died. Must you be so flippant and mock his passing?

Geez, Louise.

I worked with him once about 10 years ago. He was a nice guy. RIP Don.

Thank you Carolyn A-B. I was thinking the exact same thing. Not that I ever expect journalistic integrity or even class from TMZ, but I also found their announcement of Don's passing to be exceptionally insensitive. No one deserves to have their obit treated so callously.

wow. he was the best. it is going to be very difficult to replace him. the best usually does. his fans are going to miss him terribly. and by the way, tmz why did you say one man one collapsed lung. one tuesday morning. that is just ghoulish. harvey, it must of been early this morning and you hadn't come in yet. but still, shame on you.
