Who wouldn’t want to listen to Morgan Freeman deliver such riveting lines as, “Turn right in 200 feet?” For a limited time, Oscar winner Freeman will be providing directions for drivers who use Waze. The star of the upcoming Olympus Has Fallen sequel, London Has Fallen, will be voicing Waze in character as Vice President Trumbull.
Waze is a social navigation app that allows drivers to “work together daily to outsmart traffic and save time and money.” This isn’t the first time a celebrity has lent their voice to the driving app; Kevin Hart guided drivers in support of 2013’s Ride Along. Arnold Schwarzenegger also joined with Waze while he was promoting Terminator Genisys, delivering guidance in his Terminator voice. And Anthony Daniels was in full C-3PO mode when he worked with Waze prior to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

London Has Fallen will open in theaters on March 4, 2016. The action sequel was directed by Babak Najafi and stars Freeman, Gerard Butler, and Aaron Eckhart. The cast also includes Alon Moni Aboutboul, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Sean O’Bryan, Charlotte Riley, and Waleed Zuaiter.
London Has Fallen Plot: The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: after the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) and his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one. Morgan Freeman also stars as the Vice President of the United States.
