Introduction

We've all gotten used to Alexa's smooth voice answering our questions and confirming our lists and schedules, but now you can pack an even smoother voice into your Amazon Alexa's responses.
Announced earlier in September 2019, Samuel L. Jackson can now voice Alexa. Though it doesn't completely replace every response Alexa can have, you do have the opportunity to ask Alexa to "Ask Sam Jackson". Mr. Jackson can tell you about the weather, respond to requests to play music or tell you more about the actor's storied career. He even has an explicit language filter you can toggle to hear him be colorfully honest.

Who Is Samuel L. Jackson

The first celebrity voice to come to Amazon's Alexa is now available, and he's instantly recognizable.

Born Samuel Leroy Jackson in Washington, D.C., Samuel is an American actor and film producer. Jackson has won critical acclaim and numerous accolades and awards, and is the highest-grossing actor of all time.

He's appeared in many noticeable roles including films such as Django Unchained, Pulp Fiction, Jurassic Park, and is the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Nick Fury.

He can be known for explicit language and being hilariously and candidly blunt.
