Close

Waze users will now be able to hear the voice of God guide them through traffic.

Actor Morgan Freeman is known for playing the heavenly Father in the movie Bruce Almighty and the animated film The LEGO Movie, and now he is lending his famous voice to the traffic and navigation app we all love.

But Freeman will actually be taking on his role as Vice President Trumbull in the app, helping travelers get to the theater to see his new movie London Has Fallen.

"Far and away one of the most requested voices by Wazers, U.S. drivers will now be able to have Mr. Freeman as their new executive co-pilot," a blog post announcing the new voice reads.

Regardless of who Freeman is playing, his authoritative voice is perfect for giving directions. Starting today, Feb. 22, Waze users in the U.S. will be able to enable his voice by going to Settings > Sound > Voice Language > Morgan Freeman.

However, Freeman's voice will only be offered for a limited time.

This isn't the only place where has Freeman provided his vocal talent. The London Has Fallen actor also narrates an ad for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign titled "All the Good," which will start airing in South Carolina as the state gets ready for the Democratic primary on Feb 27. Freeman also narrated President Obama's 2010 re-election ads.

Freeman has also served as narrator for the animated film Conan the Barbarian, the TV series documentary 30 for 30 and voiced Lucuis Fox in the video game Batman Begins.

In his latest film, London Has Fallen ( the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen), Freeman reprises his role as Vice President Allan Trumbull. The movie also stars Gerard Butler as Secret Service Agent Mike Banning, Aaron Eckhart as President Benjamin Asher, and Angela Bassett as Secret Service Director Lynne Jacobs.

London Has Fallen will hit theaters on March 4.
