If you looked up "gravitas" in an online dictionary, there's an audio clip of Morgan Freeman talking about penguins or prison life or little old Southern ladies. If you looked up "hilarious" in that same dictionary, there's a clip of the actor's interview with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday's Tonight Show.
If you missed the Through The Wormhole With Morgan Freeman promo, in which the Oscar-winning actor subjected his famous voice to helium, watch it now. Then watch the star reluctantly agree to a helium-fueled interview with Fallon. One red balloon later, and the voice of God sounds like the love child of Alvin the Chipmunk and Verne Troyer.
You can't blame Fallon for cracking up, because, well, he always cracks up. But, you've got to give Freeman credit for taking part despite the stunt being "undignified." He chirped that he'd never come back to the show, but he has to. The world needs a Morgan Freeman Lip Sync Battle, and we need it now.
