Earlier this year, Samuel L. Jackson lent his voice to Amazon Alexa devices and the feature is now available to Alexa users.
Yep, since December 12, the actor's iconic voice has been an option in Alexa's Celebrity Voice Progam. US Users will now be able to interact with the critically acclaimed actor in the form of AI using their neural text-to-speech technology.
Jackson's voice won't replace Alexa altogether but can be requested on-demand.If you're excited about the prospect of speaking with the Marvel actor in AI-form, you need to check this out:
A post on the Alexa Blog reads:
"He's in the cloud baby! Hollywood legend Samuel L. Jackson is here to add some fun and entertainment to your Alexa experience. Just ask and Samuel will give you the weather, play your favorite music, tell jokes, and more. Get to know Samuel, ask him about his movies, and learn more about life in Hollywood. "To get started, just say 'Alexa, introduce me to Samuel L. Jackson,' or visit amazon.com/AskSam."[[imagecaption|| Credit: PA]]
There will, of course, be an expletive-ridden version of Jackson's voice feature - a nod to the actor's colorful language in movies such as Pulp Fiction, The Avengers, Shaft, A Time To Kill, Die Hard With A Vengeance and the Star Wars prequels - in other words, films which have ultimately had a huge impact on popular culture.
One-liners such as "get these motherf*cking snakes off this motherf*cking plane" in 2006's Snakes on a Plane have essentially made these films iconic.Remember when Samuel L Jackson swore after losing out on an Academy Award back in 1994? Well, that's Sam Jackson for you!
And if the expletive-ridden version of Jackson gets a little too much for Alexa users, they can easily turn it off in favor of a more wholesome version of the actor.
