I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it’s only the excitement a free man can feel, or someone who’s just watched this video of Morgan Freeman parodying The Shawshank Redemption on The Graham Norton Show.
Undoubtedly Morgan Freeman is the GOAT when it comes to delivering narration voiceovers in film or TV or any form really. Even Dave Chappelle upon his long-awaited return to stand-up comedy recruited Freeman to give a tongue-in-cheek voiceover to open his Deep in the Heart of Texas, the second of his new Netflix specials.
While discussing The Shawshank Redemption on Norton’s show, Freeman revealed that the movie was the start of long and fruitful second career as a voiceover narrator. Of course Norton couldn’t resist asking Freeman to give a little narration in Shawshank parody.
Freeman didn’t disappoint.
“I must admit I didn’t think much of Graham Norton the first time I laid eyes on him,” Freeman said in that glorious voice of his. “Looked like a stiff breeze could blow him over. That was my first impression of the man.”
