Morgan Freeman Has the Best Voice Ever -- Plus, He Can Fly a Plane (VIDEO)

Morgan Freeman Has the Best Voice Ever -- Plus, He Can Fly a PlaneClearly, Morgan Freeman has the coolest voice of any actor ... in the history of the world ... ever. (And if you need proof of this, just imagine how much better that last sentence would sound, if Morgan Freeman was reading it aloud.)

On the new 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), Freeman meets with Jimmy Fallon. And Jimmy can't help but gush over the actor's vocal awesomeness -- wondering what it would sound like, for instance, if Morgan Freeman was ordering a pizza.

From this point, Morgan and Fallon somehow get involved in a conversation about airplanes. Freeman says this: "I fly, y'know." Okay then. Jimmy is so enthralled by The Voice that he misunderstands for a second. But what the actor is saying is that he owns a private jet plane.

"Oh, so you fly your own plane," Jimmy says. "You actually fly fly." He also adds this: "I consider 'sitting' flying." Which is actually a good point. Whenever someone says they've "flown" somewhere, what they mean is they've sat in a chair while someone else pilots an airplane. Morgan Freeman is the exception here, because he can actually fly a real plane. But it's hard to be as cool as Mr. Freeman.

Blast from the past but I say James Remar Ajax in the Warriors and spokesman for Coors light a few years back. Definately the best voice.

The coolest voice belongs to Alan Rickman.

Add me to the Alan Rickman train. With Morgan Freemand and Sean Connery vying for second place.

/and Morgan Freeman is a great actor and I will watch anything he does. All those mentioned here are great but M.F. is greater.

Actually, I have the "coolest voice ever." But, of course, most of you don't know me. Ah, well...

Everybody is right, however it has to go to Sam Elliot, Jones and Elliot, thier tone is very similar.

Morgan is great, but what about Orson Wells, Charleton Heston, or Dennis Weave?

Another opinion fluff piece. Nothing exciting, informative or pertinent. Just another waste of space.
