LaFontaine was the narrator of the 1995 VHS release of The Making of Star Wars, which was a mail-in prize offered by the Kellogg Company. His voice replaced that of the original narrator, William Conrad. For the Special Edition re-release of the original trilogy in 1997, LaFontaine recorded several TV-spots and commercials, as well the behind-the-scenes introductions for the VHS releases.

He also starred As Himself in the sketch Five Men and A Limo. It is a testament to his legacy that even after LaFontaine's death, trailers are now mostly voiced by the very similar-sounding Miguel Ferrer. Nobody wants to see a movie unless a man with a gravelly voice tells them to. In a world without The Man, The Myth, The Legend -- Don LaFontaine -- society must find a way... to survive. RIP Don LaFontaine (1940-2008).
