DETROIT (TheStreet) -- The Matrix star Laurence Fishburne has a new gig: spokesman for Cadillac.
General Motors (GM) said Monday that Fishburne's voice will be part of Cadillac ads starting with the Rose Bowl game telecast on Jan. 1. The ads are part of Cadillac's new "Red-blooded luxury" campaign, which will make the point that Cadillac is home-grown, unlike Lexus and Mercedes Benz..

Fishburne is a screenwriter, director, producer and an actor.
