    Does he do every trailer going and if so, surely he must be famous or credited somewhere.

    I already know I'll be buying the DVD as long as it contains the trailer!
    So, what's the story with this movie? Is it a concert film, documentary, or fiction? Never heard of it before this.

    Very funny, isn't that the guy who does the voice overs on seemingly every trailer?

    hilarious!

    but AFAIK, "The Voice" that does all the trailers is Don LaFontaine, and having seen a photo of him some time ago, I'm not sure that the fellow in the booth is him (plus the producer calls him "Jack", but that could be scripted), although the voice sounds like it is.

    or have I got it all wrong and there's another "Voice"? or Don's gotten a bit older and grown a beard, so he looks different from what I remember?

    Here's an article with pictures of Don. Not the same guy as far as I can tell. But, as he says, he's not the only one out there. In his own words:

    Loved that trailer. Damn funny.
    It definitely sounds like the guy who does pretty much every other trailer. Nice to put a face to it.

    Hilarious isn't it?

    I read the article that Colin linked to about Don LaFontaine and checked out X-Files & Office Space trailers and recognise Don's voice from a lot of trailers but I'm sure the guy (Jack?) in the Comedian trailer is more familiar and could have do just as many or more than Don.

    If anyone knows who he (Jack?) is, I'd be interested to find out more & wonder if Don is getting a lot of credit for his work.

    Man, that is one funny, funny trailer. It's sort of sad because it is so true.
    In a world without laws, one man, against all odds, is sitting at his computer, laughing at a Jerry Seinfeld movie trailer. Coming soon.
