Frank Caliendo Reads LeBron James's Letter in Morgan Freemans Voice

LeBron James announced almost two weeks ago that he was returning to his home state of Ohio, and would be rejoining the Cleveland Cavaliers once again. 

James released the news in a heartfelt letter on Sports Illustrated's website, letting NBA fans known the reason for his return was a genuine love for the hometown that he left four years ago for the Miami Heat.

The news alone that LeBron would be returning home sent a flurry of news reports across the country and world.  Adding to that was the sincerity of the letter, which most critics and fans felt emotionally tied to after reading the contents.

Comedian and voice impersonator Frank Caliendo was a guest on ESPN Radio's 'Mike and Mike' on Thursday morning to make the letter even better than most believed it could have been.  Caliendo went on to read the letter in the voice of Morgan Freeman, which is one of many voices he can impersonate.

The subdued impression was spot-on and conjured images of Freeman's "Red" character narrating "The Shawshank Redemption." going over particular parts of the letter than focused on a basketball playing picking his team that he desired to return to after his stint in Miami.

Caliendo then stopped by ESPN.com’s NFL Nation TV later on Thursday to offer hilarious takes in different voices on the current state of the NFL, joining host Paul Gutierrez (Oakland Raiders reporter), co-host Coley Harvey (Cincinnati Bengals reporter) and Kevin Seifert (NFL national reporter).

Caliendo broke out many of his impressions, including his staple of staples, John Madden, in which he advised rookie Johnny Manziel to continue on partying as much as he wanted to party, in Madden's voice -- adding a few of his comedy Madden quirks into the web video feed as well.

Caliendo also went on to imitate the voice of ESPN's Jon Gruden, as a character who blurts out fantastical sayings only to realize he also has no idea what he meant afterwards.  Also, poking fun at the Gruden family's 'laser eyes' that gave off the impression that they 'didn't start the fire,' while quizzically looking around the room at other people.

Other topics discussed by Gutierrez, Harvey and Seifert included Ray Rice getting a reported two-game suspension, Tony Dungy’s recent assertion that he would not draft the openly gay Michael Sam because he would be too big a distraction, and a new home for the Raiders.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
