Jimmy Fallon and Morgan Freeman did a great job of feigning disdain for one another during Freeman’s appearance on “The Tonight Show.” Fallon started off on the wrong foot by identifying Freeman’s show as simply “Through the Wormhole.”
When he was corrected that the full title was “Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman,” Fallon rolled his eyes. “Well, this is ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,'” he retorted. “So, ‘with’ is pretty interesting, but I’m ‘Starring’ in this.”
In a nod to a bit from “Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman,” Fallon asked if Freeman would be willing to conduct the interview on Helium. He pulled out two balloons so they could both get their voices high and silly.
Fallon sucked down some helium and asked, “Do you ever want to go to space?” Freeman’s response was, “I really shouldn’t be doing this.” He added, after another suck of helium, “It’s very undignified.”
After a few more hits and plenty of laughter, Fallon asked if Freeman would come back to the show.
“I’m never coming back,” Morgan squeaked on a fresh hit of Helium.
