Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman promoting their new movie "Now You See Me." (8184)

Morgan Freeman tried his hardest to stay awake during a televised interview but he just couldn’t do it. The 75-year-old actor was speaking with Seattle’s Q13 Fox News on Wednesday morning about his new movie, “Now You See Me.”

Accompanied by one of his co-stars, Michael Caine, Freeman tried to furrow his brow and nod his head to indicate his interest, but more often than not he ended up just nodding off. Caine carried on the interview throughout Freeman’s apparent mini-nap.

“Now You See Me,” about a group of magicians who use their tricks to stage bank heists and then distribute the money to their audiences, opens May 31.
