Samuel L. Jackson

The 'Snakes on a Plane' star is the first celebrity to be announced to voice the Alexa virtual assistant, with many more famous names expected in the coming months.

At the company's annual Amazon Device event held in Seattle, Washington, it was announced Samuel's voice would be available for an introductory offer of $0.99.

Writing in the description on their website, Amazon shared: "He's in the cloud baby! Hollywood legend Samuel L. Jackson is here to add some fun to your Alexa experience. Just ask and Sam will give you the weather, play your favourite music, tell jokes, and more. To get started, just say, "Alexa, introduce me to Samuel L. Jackson." Then, choose whether you'd like Sam to use explicit language or not. If you change your mind later, simply go to the settings menu of the Alexa app to toggle between clean and explicit content.

After purchasing, try saying: "Alexa, ask Samuel L. Jackson where he is from", "Alexa, ask Sam to wake me up at 7am", "Alexa, ask Sam Jackson to sing happy birthday." Although he can do a lot, Sam won't be able to help with Shopping, lists, reminders or Skills."
