Morgan Freeman: Conservatives STOLE My Voice!!!

7/26/2011 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It might sound a heck of a lot like Morgan Freeman -- but the actor is adamant ... he did NOT lend his soothing voice to a dramatic right-wing ad campaign in Wisconsin.

The ad -- paid for a group called "Citizens for a Strong America" -- blasts Democrat Shelly Moore in the race leading up to the Wisconsin Senate recall elections ... and if you close your eyes, it almost sounds like a scene from "Shawshank Redemption."

But Morgan's rep tells us, it ain't the actor's voice -- "A political ad running in Wisconsin by a conservative group narrated by someone trying to sound like Morgan Freeman was not narrated by Mr. Freeman. Morgan Freeman did NOT narrate that ad."

It's not the first time Morgan's voice has been co-opted in Wisconsin either -- back in 2010, Gov. Scott Walker also ran a political ad using a voice that sounded suspiciously like the actor.

Calls to Citizens for a Strong America weren't returned.

It doesn't sound anything like Morgan Freeman to me. Sounds like the movie roles are drying up and poor Mr Freeman has a lot of time on his hands.

JUst because this guy sounds like Morgan Freeman, he needs to learn that people sound like other people and there is nothing you can do about it. Here in Phoenix, we have a gun store that has a Bill Clinton sound alike on the radio. You don't hear slick willie calling and complaining. Hey morgan, if you weren't an idiot Liberal, you could have done the commercial yourself and made some money.

First of all, Obama wants to tax the RICH. It's the conservatives who are blocking that from happening. Second, you can't call him a socialist and then say that he's cutting taxes for the rich. Third, why don't you actually learn what socialism is? I bet you never even heard the word before until Glen Beck told you.

There is a voiceover actor I've worked with who sounds a lot like Morgan Freeman. I've worked with him and know he works with production houses in the Carolinas. He's actually a very nice guy. He can't help it he sounds a little like Morgan Freeman.
