Morgan Freeman Angered Over Claim He Voiced Political Ad
In the fourth district North Carolina congressional race, Republican candidate B.J. Lawson ran an ad his opponent, Democrat David Price, claims was voiced by Morgan Freeman. Freeman denies ever having voiced the spot telling the Huffington Post, "These people are lying. I have never recorded any campaign ads for B.J. Lawson and I do not support his candidacy. And, no one who represents me ever has ever authorized the use of my name, voice or any other likeness in support of Lawson or his candidacy."
If you listen to the spot, it does, indeed, sound like the Freeman we have all come to be familiar with. But if you listen closely, you'll soon realize it's not him. It's a very good impersonation but it's not Freeman.
But...stranger things have happened.
