On the Knight Rider Season one DVD Pilot Commentary, creator Glen Larson mentioned that Lance LeGault had "a voice that was four octaves lower than God's." In truth, LeGault does indeed have a characteristically low voice, if not gravely; this trait helped him fetch roles (often) as a villain or other "tough guy." It also resulted in a side career doing voiceover work. LeGault's trademark voice was at one point featured on self-guided tour cassettes at Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.

LeGault also appeared in Elvis Presley's groundbreaking NBC Television special of 1968 'Elvis' (aka The 68 Comeback Special) where he sat at the side of the stage playing a tambourine.
