Video: Morgan Freeman nods off during live TV interview

Morgan Freeman, aka the God of Hollywood, was on American TV to plug his latest movie when he shut his eyes and went for forty winks...

Being an actor isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Okay, so you get millions of dollars and more women than you know what to do with, but there’s plenty of other crap you have to put up with.


One such thing is early morning interviews on breakfast news shows and as Morgan Freeman recently found out, all those early mornings eventually take their toll.

Freeman was being interviewed along side the legendary Michael Cane as they plugged their new flick Now You See Me, which looks a bit like The Prestige (which also featured Cane) but with a modern twist.

In fairness, Morgan falling asleep was probably the most interesting thing that happened during the interview. You can check out the whole thing below.

After watching the clip a few times you’d have to wonder, maybe Freeman was just pulling a Patrick Stewart? Who knows?
