PHILADELPHIA — After it was announced that actor Seth Rogen would become the new voice of Vancouver’s TransLink, SEPTA’s marketing team asked its riders who they’d like to hear on station announcements while waiting for their next train, bus, or trolley, with actor Will Smith and comedians Big Jay Oakerson and Kevin Hart topping the list, reports The Inquirer.

Overall, the agency received 954 entries, with actress Tina Fey, NPR’s Terry Gross, and musician Questlove also receiving votes.
