There’s a lot that goes into promoting a new movie, including crazy work hours and early morning interviews for the flick’s starring cast. While out promoting his latest film Now You See Me, with co-star Michael Caine, 75-year-old actor Morgan Freeman dozed off in the middle of an interview with Q13 Fox News!
As Michael went on and on about the amazing CGI special effects used in the filming of Now You See Me and many other popular action films, Morgan can be seen seated next to him with fluttering eyelids in an apparent battle with the Sandman. Unfortunately, the Sandman won because only seconds later Uncle Morgan drifts into a quick nap. As the interview ensues, he briefly awakens from his slumber, but it doesn’t last long. Q13 Fox cuts to a brief clip from the movie, then the camera cuts back to Morgan, who has fallen back to sleep and is slouching to the side like a deacon trying to sneak in a nap before work on the last pew of a church! Towards the end of the video, Morgan wakes up and begins nodding in approval of his co-stars film technology explanations.
He later joked that he wasn’t sleeping, but testing a new Google product.
“I wasn’t actually sleeping. I’m a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page.”
Oh Uncle Morgan, you slay us!

A successful marriage takes a lot of hard work, compassion and compromise. While it was virtually unheard of years ago, more and more couples are getting divorced late in life. Here are 15 couples that almost stood the test of time.
When Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman met, it was a match made in heaven. The two actors tied the knot in 1982 but after 30 years of wedded bliss, Devito and Perlman announced their split in October 2012. Word on the street was Devito’s roving eye was to blame. All may be forgiven though because the couple was recently spotted together after enjoying a Hawaiian vacation. The “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” star said in a recent interview he and Perlman were working on their marriage. “Rhea and I are really close. Actually still together, just separate, but together.” At 68 and 64 they ought to be.
Remember when you were 10 and 11 and you thought you could do anything and there still might be monsters in your closet and magic was possibly real? Well, we have these movies to thank for that. When we were kids, we absolutely loved these flicks and as adults, we officially consider them our childhood faves.
Baseball commentator Scott Smalls reminisces about the summer of ’62, the year his family moved and he first fell in love with the game of baseball. It was in “The Sandlot” that he learned first-hand the meaning of teamwork and camaraderie. He also realizes everyone abstains from hitting a homerun over the sandlot fence because there’s a ferocious dog guarding the property. As luck would have it, the first time Scott “borrows” his stepfather’s autographed baseball without asking, he hits it over the fence and has to go retrieve it. A classic cult favorite, “The Sandlot” spawned three direct-to-video sequels.

Lean on Me is a classic in the black community. In 1988, the world was introduced to the troubled Eastside High in Passaic County New Jersey. The cameras went through the troubled halls of the high school that ran rampant with violence, drugs, and disrespectful teenagers. Joe Clark/Crazy Joe/Bat Man stepped onto the scene, and though he initially came off as cantankerous, there was a method to his madness and he was able to help the students pass the minimum basic skills test.
Now, we all know that there are some powerhouses in this movie: Morgan Freeman, Robert Guillaume, Regina Taylor, Beverly Todd and Michael Beach, but what about the teens that were the driving force in the movie? Where are they now? Well…
It’s not often that we hear about a celebrity marriage lasting, and when one doesn’t we all sit and wait patiently for the nasty divorce settlements. With so much money and fame involved, it’s not uncommon for negotiations to get a little dirty, but in the end most of these ex-wives end up getting broke all.the.way.off. Though it’s never a happy thing to see a marriage end, we’re pretty sure some of these women dried their tears in dollar bills and ended up laughing their way to the bank. While love doesn’t cost a thing, divorces really do. Here are 14 of the biggest celebrity divorce settlements in our lifetime.
For some actors, being given the chance to star in a film is the dream of a lifetime, though some actors have had the opportunity to play a lead role in a movie and declined the offer. Here are 14 actors who were offered a lead role but said “no thanks!”
R&B singer Ne-Yo made headlines recently when he revealed that he turned down the chance to play Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. because he didn’t want to gain 30 pounds. He may have passed on a career defining opportunity, but after his role in Red Tails, maybe not…
In the acting world, getting the chance to play someone famous in a biopic is sure to take a career to the next level, and these days, everybody is doing it. Usher has already spoken out about the high expectations he has for his upcoming role as Sugar Ray Leonard. He wants an Oscar. He’d be following in the footsteps of fellow entertainers and actors who have stepped into the shoes of iconic public figures and created a path towards podiums in doing so.
Denzel was robbed of an Oscar for his portrayal of slain civil rights activist Malcolm X in 1993. Denzel assumed the identity of the complex man with ease and grace. He spoke the way Malcolm spoke. He carried himself the way Malcolm did and he made people feel as passionately about the Nation of Islam as the leader did with his nuanced performance. Denzel thoroughly inhabited the role of Malcolm through his cadence, posture and every inflection to the point where it felt he was no longer acting. He became Malcolm Little turned unconventional hero. Denzel may not have won the Oscar for the biopic, but the universal praise for his performance should be a fitting consolation.
