Morgan Freeman. Actor, Hollywood ‘God’ & Budding Beekeeper (Video)

The bees will not DARE sting Morgan Freeman. He’s feeding them that good sugar water!

Plus, the ‘buzz’ is (groan) that people treat him like a god. Ha! Honey bees want Morgan Freeman on their side for certain. Cool dude. They will get to know that about him… and he does not take himself too seriously. I remember folks making a big thing of him falling asleep during a movie promo interview (we posted that on here).

Jimmy talks to Morgan Freeman about his new hobby and what Morgan thinks about impressions of him.

“Transcendence” (Movie Trailer)

Incredible trailer to say the least. Keep telling yourself, “It’s just a movie. They can’t do that in real life.” Sure. But do me a favor before you get too comfortable with that assertion. Google “yadabyte” for me. Remember when kilobytes and megabytes were “big” to us? Like in the 1990s? We could be closing in the big tech that could drive ‘the singularity.’

And leave it to Morgan Freeman to be [part of a group] ‘playing God’ in a movie. Hahaaa. Looks like a powerful story though. Check out Johnny Depp the super genius in the lead role in “Transcendence” (due out in theaters April 17, 2014) above.

Comedy: De Niro, Douglas, and Freeman To Star in “Last Vegas” (Trailer)

Director Jon Turteltaub probably had his hands full reigning in this A-List cast (each with a resume rife with silliness, as well as drama) for the comedy “Last Vegas.”  Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline are four old friends who decide to throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single. The film is slated to hit theaters next month. Looks good.

Morgan Freeman Covers ‘Twerking’ On HLN (Video)

‘Twerking’ has been added to the Oxford Dictionary. That’s bad. Having Morgan Freeman ‘reporting’ it as part of a morning broadcast… REALLY bad. He was wide awake at 5 AM to read this mini-story on ‘twerking’ … Now, if you read our last post related to Morgan Freeman, you know he could have been doing something… ANYTHING… better. Like catching up on sleep.

In the clip, he admits he hadn’t even HEARD of ‘twerking’ until HLN Morning Express had him reading about it that day. Should’ve gotten Miley Cyrus to read the bit. She could have covered other slang – like ‘pop the Miley molly’ or something. No sweatin’ (woooo). Hahaaa!

Morgan Freeman Falls Asleep During An Interview For His Upcoming Film ‘Now You See Me’ (Video)

Now You See - Caine with Freeman noddingBefore you tell someone how tired you are on your grind, maybe you should watch this. This is a clip of the promo work being put in by respected actors Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman for their new film “Now You See Me.” Now, you must watch, and listen, to the very end. Halfway through, Mr. Freeman succumbs to fatigue for just a bit. Mr. Caine carries on with the interview, continuing discussion on the magic tricks that were part of the film. Then, as the video feed switches back to film footage, you can hear Freeman shaking off the morning fatigue to push through to the end of what was probably a long press junket. How can we know? Well, right at the end, you can hear audio of an exasperated Caine asking, “Is this the last one?”

These legends of film are still working this hard. Now, how tired are you again? Maybe they should name this new movie ‘Now You See Me Sleeping’.

UPDATE: Morgan Freeman issues a hilarious response to the infamous video below

“Regarding my recent interview, I wasn’t actually sleeping. I’m a beta tester for Google Eyelids and I was merely taking the opportunity to update my Facebook page.”Morgan Freeman
