freeman sleep

*Press junkets can be tedious – sitting in the same room, answering the same questions from journalists via dozens upon dozens of satellite interviews, all day long, for several days in a row.

You have to get a nap in whenever you can. And if you’re Morgan Freeman, that means in the middle of an interview if necessary.

The 75-year-old Oscar winner nodded off during a live chat with Seattle’s Q13 Fox News morning crew early Wednesday while his older, 80-year-old costar Michael Caine promoted their new crime caper, “Now You See Me.”

In the clip, Freeman is seen dozing off, not once but several times as Caine rattles on about the movie. At one point, Morgan’s head briefly slumps forward, but he snaps back in time to answer a question.

Watch below. He starts nodding at 1:59.

“Now You See Me” follows an FBI agent and an Interpol detective tracking a team of illusionists who use their skills during performances to rob banks and reward their audiences with the money. It arrives in theaters on May 31.
