Morgan Freeman's Voice Solves Everything

Morgan Freeman's voiceover has replaced Walter Cronkite's on CBS Evening News...


Is there anything Morgan Freeman's voice can't do?

CBS doesn't think so and have tapped Freeman to replace Walter Cronkite's Evening News voiceover intro

Nearly six months after his death, Walter Cronkite's voice is leaving the "CBS Evening News."

The CBS News legend recorded a voiceover introducing current anchor Katie Couric when she started on the job in 2006. CBS kept Cronkite's voice on the broadcast even after he died in July.

By The Buzz's unofficial tally, Morgan Freeman's voice: Won Obama the election, has a good exit strategy for Afghanistan, was in contention for the Nobel Peace Prize and was the inspiration for Avatar.
