How to make my voice sound DEEEEEP?

Metafilter, I am a tall and fit guy but my voice is high and nervous sounding. Are there any methods to deepen my sissy voice and make me a paler version of Morgan Freeman?

This is something I was struggling for a while now and were wondering if any of you fine gentlemen and ladies have any suggestions?
My voice is not girly but it is definitely not deep and calculated. It is especially bad during phone conversations as I become self consensuses and try to spit it out as fast as I can, resulting in mumbling, high pitched train wreck.
I am pretty intelligent and handsome, but when I open my mouth sometimes I feel that I lose respect and authority just due to my voice.
1. Any books, videos, workshops, voice school? ideas would be great. I am willing to drop some coins to make a meaningful and permanent transition.
2. Assuming there are various good techniques, how do I constantly think about them and apply them in day to day basis? I mean, talking is almost like breathing, in the sense that it is on "auto mode" and that we talk pretty much all the time during our waking hours. Are there any gadgets that, some kind of wrist band that, lets say, will vibrate every half an hour, thus reminding me to practice those techniques?
I am not looking into narrating drama movies about prisons, but would definitely want a manly man tone.
Thank you for reading and looking forward to hear your ideas,
