Samuel L. Jackson’s voice has arrived on Amazon’s Alexa. Announced in September, Amazon’s celebrity voice program replaces the soft, soothing, yet sometimes annoying, voice of Alexa.
Jackson’s voice doesn’t only replace Alexa’s but also the words can be replaced too! You can tell Jackson to talk dirty to you – well, not dirty, but he can use dirty words in a new ‘explicit mode.’
Samuel L. Jackson’s Alexa skill is available here for purchase or you can ask your device directly by saying “Alexa, introduce me to Samuel L. Jackson. You’ll be asked about your clean or explicit content preferences during set up.
After that, you can interact with him in many of the same ways that you do with Alexa. However, you just need to start your questions or requests with “Alexa, ask Samuel L. Jackson…”.
You can get Samuel L. Jackson to tell you the weather, sing you happy birthday, provide information on his career and personal interests, and more.
Jackson is ranked as the highest all-time box office star with over $7.1 billion total US box office gross, an average of $89.9 million per film. The worldwide box office total of his films (excluding cameo appearances) is over $16.7 billion. He became the top-grossing actor in October 2011, surpassing veteran voice actor Frank Welker.
He came to prominence in the early 1990s with films such as Goodfellas (1990), Jungle Fever (1991), Patriot Games (1992), Amos & Andrew (1993), True Romance (1993), Jurassic Park (1993) and his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino including Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Django Unchained (2012), and The Hateful Eight (2015). For his role in Pulp Fiction, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
