Watch Morgan Freeman Fall Asleep During TV Interview (VIDEO)

When actors promote a film, they do interview after interview after interview. It must get tiring. In this one, maybe Morgan Freeman thought the camera was tight on his Now You See Me co-star, Sir Michael Caine, as Michael chatted away with KCPQ in Seattle. Instead, the video shows Morgan looking like it's a struggle to stay awake while Michael talks about the film. It's funny and awkward, but it's also Morgan Freeman and he can get away with anything. Still, he's "only" 75. Michael Caine is 80 and he's not only wide awake, he's yakking away with the energy of a 25-year-old! Maybe Morgan was just tired of hearing him talk?

UPDATE: After the video went viral Thursday, Morgan joked to People, "I wasn't actually sleeping. I'm a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page."
