The new announcer for NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams sounds a heck-of-a lot like Michael Douglas. His voice was just heard during the open of Nightly News. Williams will confirm later in the broadcast.

On his blog Williams writes, “Let me just say this about this man: I called him, I appealed to his sense of history and tradition and his love of the medium — and he said yes without hesitation. I was a fan before this. Now I am devoted to the guy.”
