Now that Morgan Freeman has partnered with Waze it seems like James Earl Jones and Alec Baldwin are the two ‘Great White Buffaloes’ still out there, the voices that fans are clamoring to have speak their GPS directions.
Bringing in big name celebrities to speak turn-by-turn navigation directions is nothing new for Waze, in fact they’ve had quite a bit of success with this in the past. Previous celebrity voice packs include:
