Today we learned a valuable lesson - sometimes, even God needs his beauty sleep. Case-in-point: While promoting his new film Now You See Me with co-star Michael Caine in a live, on-air interview for Tacoma, Washington's local Fox affiliate, Morgan Freeman visibly dozed off in his seat. Caine kept speaking in an effort to keep the interview going, killing time by talking about learning card tricks off a real magician, and how CGI was not used in the film.

Freeman does wake up at the end of the clip though - just in time for the news anchor to tell Freeman all about how his daughter just got cast as a narrator for a local play, because a conversation like that is totally not a surefire way to put Freeman right back to sleep.

You can check the clip out above.
