The homeless man with the golden radio voice who has become an Internet sensation has landed a television gig, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Ohio man, Ted Williams, was hired by MSNBC to do voiceovers for commercials, the story says.
As previously reported, Williams was discovered when the Columbus Dispatch made a video of him and posted it on YouTube. With the MSNBC gig, he’ll be doing voiceovers for commercials for the network’s "Lean Forward" campaign, which began airing Thursday.
Williams also appeared as a guest on MSNBC’s "The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell."
