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.

I probably would have thought it was Morgan if you had not brought this up, but after listening to it, it does not sound like Morgan Freeman, close but no cigar.

I hope he sues those lying right-wing s***bags for all they've got and gives the money to Wisconsin teachers who are being screwed by Wisconsin's *******ger governor, who's just a puppet for the Koch brothers and their corporate interests.

It's that rapper lifestyle thing    

Hey Morgan? Are you aware that it was a member of the G.O.P. party (Lincoln) who made you a "FREE" "MAN?"

So is someone suggesting that whomever did the narration of this video not be allowed to work in this field because they sound to much like Morgan Freeman?
He would probably respond with F-Off, Morgan Freeman sounds like me.

Progressive Liberals steal the education of our nation's children *every day* by supporting cr@ppy teachers who belong to unions.

Hey Morgan, why don't you complain about that?

No question about it. Blatant rip-off. 100% a twin of Morgan's voice.

wow    

Americans are funny. Let's be honest, it was a blatant attempt to copy Morgan's voice. He should be peeved if he didn't get paid. Kim K should also be peeved with Old Navy.
