You may not recognize Redd Pepper's name, but you've definitely heard his voice. For almost 25 years, Richardson Green (a.k.a. Redd Pepper) has been one of the U.K.'s biggest voice over artists and one of Hollywood's go-to guys when it comes to film trailers. He's voiced more than one hundred movie trailers for films like Jurassic Park, Men in Black and Space Jam.

For a long time, Redd Pepper has been known as the man behind the trailer, but a few weeks ago, a short documentary on YouTube gave a first look at the man behind the voice. Within a couple of days, the video racked up over two million views.

Redd Pepper joins q guest host Laurie Brown to talk about the internet frenzy, his decade-spanning career and why the classic movie trailer phrase, "In a world..." will never get old.
