We KNEW there had to be an explanation for this! LOLz!
For those of who had a good, solid chuckle yesterday morning while watching Morgan Freeman gradually close his eyelids and eventually drift off to slumberland in the middle of an interview for Seattle's Q13 Fox News This Morning while promoting his new movie Now You See Me with Michael Caine, you should be ashamed of yourselves!
The famous actor has come forward to DENY such a bold-faced lie, and instead, claims he was in fact up to something QUITE different!
Apparently, according to this just-released statement:
Perhaps all the press is tiring the guy out!
Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine started promoting their upcoming film Now You See Me on local TV news station show Q13 Fox News This Morning — yesterday morning — but it seems one of the actors wasn’t quite awake.
During one of Michael’s enthusiastic responses, Morgan got a few seconds of shuteye until he eventually shook off his exhaustion. LOLZ!!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-mazing clip (above)!!
Hope that quick nap helped, Morgan!!
Imagine if the legendary actors behind Raging Bull, Wall Street, and The Shawshank Redemption teamed up for one last hurrah in Sin City?
Good news, you won't have to because Last Vegas is real!!!
Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, and Morgan Freeman have joined forces.
Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above)!
It's like The Hangover… with adult diapers!! LOLz, JK!
Last Vegas hits theaters on November 1!
It looks like Captain Jack Sparrow will be teaming up with the greatest voice in film, as Morgan Freeman will be joining Johnny Depp in the upcoming movie Transcendence!
Talk about a dynamic duo!!
They've been keeping a pretty tight lid on plot details, so we have NO CLUE what the film is about. But we do know that it will be the directorial debut of The Dark Knight and Inception cinematographer Wally Pfister!
If that isn't enough to grab your attention, Christopher Nolan will serve as executive producer, just to make sure everything turns out as awesome as we're hoping!
Both Wally and Nolan worked with Freeman in The Dark Knight trilogy, so it makes sense that they were able to land him for the super secret film.
Although we don't know much about Transcendence, they're assembling a pretty kick-ass team so far! We definitely can't wait to get more deets!

It's not the size of your wand that matters, boyz, but the quality of tricks it performs!!
In their latest flick, Now You See Me, Dave Franco & Jessie Eisenberg play rebellious illusionists who steal from the rich and give to
poor disgruntled middle-class while the FBI is powerless to stop them!
Mmm. They're more magically delicious than a truck full of Lucky Charms! We'd let them pull a rabbit out our hat ANY day!
And they're just two of the mouth-watering hottiez starring in next month's Sin City thriller!!!
Ch-ch-check out Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine in the brand-spanking-new trailer (above)!
We haven't seen a cast this star-studded and delightful since Demi Lovato fractured her fibula, LOLz!!
Now You See Me magically appears in theaters on May 31!
In the meantime, see hawt new stills from the flick (below)!
A better world might not be the only good thing to come from the Supreme court's marriage equality debates! It looks like the Prop 8 movie is getting the fast track!
Last year, Dustin Lance Black put on a play called 8 in NYC and L.A. — and Rob Reiner, one of the directors, already knew he wanted to take it to the big screen!
Of COURSE there's going to be a big-screen adaptation, and Black is on track (that rhymes!) to finish up that script as fast as he can! Which makes sense, because the media buzz around the debates has been huge. If you're going to bank off of it (and inspire everyone while you're at it), it better be now!
We're hearing it's slated to be directed by Reiner, but shooting probably won't happen until June or July — when the Supreme Court finally rules on the ridiculousness of Prop 8. No word on who will star, but if they take any of the cast members for either city, it'll be perfect!
In L.A., it was
Did someone just say abracadabra?!! Because Now You See Me just sawed our brain in half and magically put it back together!
The upcoming film follows four fabulously talented Sin City magicians who steal from the rich to give to the poor!
Aww, how sweet!
Ch-ch-check out Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Woody Harrelson, and Common in the trailer (above)!!
The last time we saw this many shining stars together at once, we were floating naked next to Zac Efron in a moonlit lake, staring up into a pristine beautiful night sky!
Ok, so that was a wonderfully ah-mazing dream we had last night, but Now You See Me is for real!
Like a dove in a hat, expect it to magically appear in theaters on June 7!
