Seth Rogen May Replace Morgan Freeman As Voice Of Vancouver Public Transit

Following reports this week accusing Morgan Freeman of sexual harassment on various film sets and in interviews, the veteran actor has been axed from a planned promotional campaign for public transport in the city of Vancouver, and may be replaced with Seth Rogen.

Morgan Freeman had recorded voice-overs for Vancouver’s TransLink system, as part of a collaboration with VISA. Had the campaign gone ahead, commuters on trains and buses throughout the Canadian city would have heard him telling them about a new tap-and-go system.

On Thursday, following a CNN report on Freeman, Translink released a statement, saying:

“In light of information we’ve learned through news stories on May 24, 2018, of serious allegations against actor Morgan Freeman, TransLink has decided to pause his voice announcements as part of a VISA ad campaign on the transit system. We will be reaching out to VISA to discuss further.”

Vancouver Sun reporter Stephanie Ip threw out Seth Rogen’s name as a possible substitute for Morgan Freeman. The actor soon responded, saying “yo if they need a replacement let me know.”

Translink’s Twitter then jumped in, saying: “Thanks for the offer Seth. Let’s DM and talk.”

While others had suggested Ryan Reynolds as another possible replacement, it seems that Seth Rogen’s distinctive laugh may soon be ringing out across Vancouver’s public transit system.
