Best move fast, though-it goes up to $4.99 following the introductory period.

Once the new skill is installed, just say "Alexa, ask Samuel L. Jackson", and follow up with the question to hear the answer in his voice. Prime members can even use a $1 No-Rush Shipping credit to purchase it if you have any saved.

As Alexa users have always been requesting familiar celebrity voices on their devices, Amazon has dropped a skill carrying the voice of Samuel L. Jackson - a first in many more to come. For those wondering, Sam does use explicit language, if you want him to.

Once you've enabled the skill, you have to preface any requests for Jackson with the Alexa wake word - for example, "Alexa, ask Samuel L. Jackson where he is from", or "Alexa, ask Samuel L. Jackson to sing Happy Birthday". You can ask him to tell jokes, wish you Merry Christmas or sing Jingle Bells. Starting today, Alexa users can get the Samuel L. Jackson skill for a minuscule $0.99, enabling them to ask the personal assistant questions and get responses from Jackson himself.

Jenkins waived by Giants after tweeting insult to fan
The 31-year-old had started 13 games for the Giants this season and led the team with four interceptions and 14 pass break-ups. When a fan responded that Jenkins' stats hadn't helped NY break a nine-game losing streak, Jenkins called the fan a "retard".

It's impossible to think of Samuel L. Jackson without thinking of a few choice quotes which aren't very appropriate for younger ears. That way, you'll only hear the clean version of Sam.

"Alexa, ask Samuel what his favorite game is".

Amazon explains that while Jackson's voice can do a lot, he won't be able to help with shopping, lists, reminders, or Skills.

Alternatively, you can summon Alexa and then say, 'Alexa, introduce me to Samuel L. Jackson.' Users are given the option of allowing the celebrity voice to include explicit language, something Jackson is known for; it's possible to change this setting at a later time using the Alexa app.
