Samuel L. Jackson Is Coming to Alexa as Its First Celebrity Voice

“The weather is sunny, motherf*cker!” During yesterday’s Alexa event, Amazon revealed that Hollywood legend Samuel L. Jackson has lent his iconic voice to its hugely popular voice assistant, which now powers everything from speakers to microwaves.

The celebrity voice will be available for purchase later this year for Alexa device owners who want Jules Winnfield to give them the weather, play some music, wake them up in the morning, sing happy birthday, and more. A toggle between clean and explicit content will be available.

Just ask and Sam will give you the weather, play your favorite music, tell jokes, and more. To get started, just say, “Alexa, introduce me to Samuel L. Jackson.” Then, choose whether you’d like Sam to use explicit language or not. If you change your mind later, simply go to the settings menu of the Alexa app to toggle between clean and explicit content.
