Morgan Freeman Recreates ‘Shawshank Redemption’ Voiceover On ‘Graham Norton Show’ (VIDEO)
Morgan Freeman recreated one of his iconic voiceover narrations from The Shawshank Redemption on Friday’s “Graham Norton Show.” Watch the video below!
The actor appeared alongside Going in Style co-star Michael Caine on the British talk show, during which the host noted that Freeman’s voiceover work in the 1994 classic turned him into “Mr. Narration.” Norton then asked the actor to reinterpret a piece of dialogue from the film that would make him the subject instead of the main character played by Tim Robbins.
Freeman agreed, and with the film’s score playing in the background, the actor said, “I must admit, I didn’t think much of Graham Norton the first time I laid eyes on him. Looked like a stiff breeze could blow him over. That was my first impression of the man.” He added, “I could see why some people took him for annoying. He had a walk and a talk that just wasn’t normal around here. And boy did he drink. He drank like a man without a care or worry in the world.”
The actor concluded his narration by saying, “I hope to finish this talk show one day. I hope Michael stops talking for just one second. I hope people stop asking me to do stupid voiceovers like this. I hope.” Watch the funny “Graham Norton Show” video below!
