Actor Samuel L Jackson Will Voice 'God'

Samuel L Jackson will voice God in a new audio version of the Bible.

The taped recording of the New Testament will feature many famous other black actors and musicians.

Jackson was given the lead role because producers felt his deep, authorative voice was perfect for the role of God.

A source tells British newspaper The Daily Telegraph: "Samuel's just finished recording a CD set of the New Testament. The recording is due to be released in September, with a box set of the Old Testament to follow next year.

"Scores of other black actors, musicians and athletes will also figure, but Samuel was deemed to be the perfect person to play God."
