Skip to comments.Morgan Freeman narrates Lawson ad [NC-04]

Actor Morgan Freeman is the voice that narrates GOP congressional candidate B.J. Lawson's latest TV and radio ads.
It is Freeman who says: What is David Price afraid of? He was referring to the Democratic congressman.
Lawson said he was inspired by Freeman explaining the importance of the founding documents in his narration of a video about the Declaration of Independence.
Barbara Streisand wouldn't do this, but Morgan Freeman doesn't have a problem cutting ads against Washington insiders or he wouldn't do it, said Martin Avila, Lawson's campaign manager.

Morgan Freeman is certainly a big liberal and I’m sure he was paid well for doing this. He does have a great and distinctive voice though and the ad will probably help Lawson’s campaign.
I see. Everybody is a Washington Insider.
Say, is it true that Mr. Freeman is going to wed his step granddaughter?
If true, that really creeps me out.
Freeman has always been one of my favorite actors and his voice is extremely pleasant (for lack of a better word) to listen to. He’s ‘narrated’ a couple of his movies such as Shaw Shank Redemption and The Bucket List. I bet the ad will be a good one.
I’m impressed that he would agree to do this.
I love Morgan Freeman’s voice..so happy to read this!
Looks like Republicans aren’t racist after all.
If I ever run for President, I am going to have Angelina Jolie do the voice over for my ads. ;)
I always thought John Facenda had the best broadcasting voice of all time.
Easy Reader reads for the G.O.P.?
Isn’t James Earl Jones a Republican?
I’m still waiting to buy a Morgan Freeman talking GPS.
“Go down the road, just past Ms. Burke’s house, you know, the small white house with so many petunias and azaleas springin’ up like fire from the hearth. Then you take a left towards the old oak tree than Bing and Joe use to swing from ‘til Bing got drafted and shipped to Vietnam and Joe got married. Then proceed 2 miles to the Kroger’s, and don’t forget to greet Donna if she’s smoking a cigarette outside.”
*Easy Reader reads for the G.O.P.?*
Didn’t he also say:
“My mellow fellow turned out yellow?”
One of ‘The Best’ narration jobs that Morgan Freeman has ever done was a National Geographic documentary called, “March Of The Penguins”.
(I Think that was it National Geographic who did it)
My initial reaction to this was to think that here, in Morgan Freeman, at least one black actor has left the Hollywood plantation and is thinking for himself. I’m hoping that not all black actors are commie libs like Danny Glover, et al, running down to Venezuela to hug Chavez.
I hope Freeman did this for patriotic reasons, and NOT just for the money. As successful as he’s been at his craft, I cannot imagine him needing money that bad that he would sell his voice for a cause he dislikes.
Also, isn’t FREEMAN a great name for someone who’s left the plantation and is living his own life?!
Whatever Morgan Freeman’s political or ideological leanings may be, he has always been a gentleman. I have no problem with him at all.
Helen Thomas’ little sister?
Whoa!!!! Please put a curtain over an image like THAT, and give the viewer the option of choosing whether to open the curtain, and a chance to squint his eyes and steel himself BEFORE he does!!! Whew!! Dang near lost my lunch!!
A lot of freed slaves took the surname Freeman.
In somewhat related news, if the emails I’m getting from MoveOn.org in the Triangle area (yes, I’m on their list, for intelligence gathering purposes....oddly enough, I’ve found no intelligence there yet), the lefties are having a SERIOUS problem finding enough volunteers in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro/Durham area to fill out their relatively modest request for volunteers to hand out material at polling places tomorrow.
To give you a hint, the latest email from this morning had the subject line “please please please.”
The desperation is palpable.
Yes, he is. So is Ernie Banks and Hank Aaron.
I’m signed up for a lot of Dem campaign e-mails too, and you’re right about their desperation.
The DCCC is also lying their asses off to their base, telling them they’ve got some mysterious polling data that just came in and with a few more bucks they’ll be able to turn things around. They’ve been running this same line over and over for the last week.
He’s got another series, ‘Through the Wormhole’, Science Channel.
I will check it out!
I always liked him. He served in the military as an officer. I thought he was terrific at a young age in Dr. Stranglove. His nervous voice kept upping the tension. I saw a web interview where they asked him about Darth Vader. He said he needed the work and did not get paid that much. I think he had a little bit of the profits so that helped. I could tell he was a Repub because he was modest and self deprecating. Most lib Dems are ego maniacs.
He was very good in the Tom Clancy films too.
I get sick thinking how steroid cheaters stole Hank Aaron’s record.
That said, gooooo BJ!
Yeah, hank Aaron was the real deal. And a gentleman. God bless him.
I got 3 extra votes for Lawson, beside myself and wife.
Two of them have never voted.
It’s ashamed candidates can get away with outright lies and omissions in their ads, by law.
Price and Etheridge ads are pounding the idea their repub opponents want to raise the sales tax to 21%.
No mention they also want to get rid of income taxes.
Great! I was so worried that my family wouldn’t get off their butts to go vote on Tuesday that I talked them into voting absentee weeks ago. There’s 6 votes right there, and I’m trying to talk 2 friends into voting tomorrow.
Re: the ads, the Dems have been running the same line of attack across the country, the lie-by-omission about the “23% tax raise.” And, the other lie-by-omission about privatizing social security. Price, Etheridge, McIntyre, Kissell and Shuler have all been running ads with those themes.
Yeah, a dim talking point nationwide.
I’ll use Sarah Palin’s description “Corrupt B_______”
I have heard conservative things about him in the past.
I have always liked him.
Now I have another reason.
Freeman at least thinks that the dead Presidents on GOP money aren’t racist. ;d
Hank Aaron is still the Home Run King!
LOL! Post of the Week! (and it's only Monday). That's a keeper, great post!
I don't know but he is sleeping with her.
Now THAT’S creepy.
Aaron was a huge supporter of the Clintons.
I don’t know about Jones and Banks.
Perhaps being around Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon has turned Morgan Freeman away from Marxist ideologies.
That Was a Fun Documentary!
I think he does the voiceovers for the Visa credit cards. And to think it all started on The Electric Co.
It’s a hoax; he didn’t do it...they used a voice-double:
