    Did you hear the one about Morgan Freeman falling asleep during a TV interview?

    Well, it happened. And we've got the video to prove it!

    The 75-year-old Oscar winner couldn't help catching some spontaneous Z's during a live chat with Seattle's Q13 Fox News morning crew early Wednesday while his more sprightly 80-year-old costar Michael Caine hyped their new crime caper, Now You See Me.

    If you watch the clip, you'll see Freeman dozing off, not once but a couple of times as his fellow acting legend talked about all the neat magic tricks the movie's magician characters pull off without computer effects.

    A little ways into the chat, Morgan's head briefly slumps forward, but he recovers quickly enough to answer one more question.

    Somebody conjure the poor guy up a cup of coffee.

    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 hits theaters on May 31.
