Annoying Commute? Let Liam Neeson Show You the Way on Waze

Liam Neeson Waze

Ever wish Liam Neeson would magically appear and have your back in trying situations? Your wish is about to come true. This holiday season, the beloved actor can ride shotgun in your car as you brave crowded parking lots and busy highways, thanks to Waze.

The Google-owned traffic and navigation app on Tuesday announced that Neeson can now voice your commute. He lent his voice to the app's turn-by-turn directions as a way to promote his new movie The Commuter, which hits theaters Jan. 12.

"Imagine: you're in your car, coffee safely in the cup holder, playing a great song, and (actually) enjoying your routine morning commute. Then, out of nowhere, everything changes. The clouds break and a storm hits hard. The car in front of you slams their breaks for an unexpected accident-related jam," Waze wrote in a blog post. "What do you do next? You call on the one-and-only Liam Neeson—or at least his signature, reassuring voice—to show you the safe way out of hazards, jams and obstacles ahead."

To get Neeson to guide your way, go to Settings, tap Voice Directions, and select Liam Neeson. The actor "will be available to ride shotgun through Jan. 14," Waze wrote.

Neeson isn't the only famous actor who has lent their voice to Waze. Last year, Morgan Freeman voiced the app's navigation feature to promote his movie London Has Fallen. In the past, Waze has also partnered with Arnold Schwarzenegger, comedians Stephen Colbert and Kevin Hart, and C3PO from the Star Wars universe.
