Morgan Freeman falls asleep during on-air interview

It seems like everything about Morgan Freeman is epic: His voice, his acting -- and now his snoring.

The actor is going viral this week after being caught snoozing during a live TV interview alongside Michael Caine while promoting his new film Now You See Me.

Freeman and Caine are making the press junket interview rounds to hype the release, but it looks like Freeman is getting a little old for all the traveling.

The duo recently appeared on Tacoma's Fox affiliate Q13 for an interview session, but Freeman clearly was ready for bed. (Mobile users watch here http://bit.ly/12AVVBU)

During the interview, Freeman began nod off while Caine was speaking. His head even bobbed forward, waking him up.

But the best part about the whole incident is Freeman's response when asked about the sleeping.

He quipped, "I wasn't actually sleeping. I'm a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page."
