“The Tonight Show” created another classic moment Thursday when actor Morgan Freeman inhaled helium and spoke in a voice far-removed from his famous deep tones.
Freeman’s first words in his squeaky helium-induced voice were perfect: “I really shouldn’t be doing this. It’s very undignified.”

It may have been undignified, but it was funny, and Fallon laughed a lot in the segment as he, too, inhaled helium from a red balloon. Freeman, however, maintained a dignified, and even stern, stare at Fallon’s antics.
“I want to thank you so much for being on the show and please, would you ever like to come back,” Fallon asked his guest at the end.
Freeman shook his head and answered with the aid of helium, “I’m never coming back.”
Freeman’s stare was so uncompromising that some commented on the "Tonight Show" YouTube video that maybe he wasn’t joking.
“Morgan seemed to be enjoying himself until Fallon brought out the Helium. I can't really tell if he's acting or not, seems like he's dead serious and just didn't want to be there,” one person wrote.
But others thought the actor was taking it well.
“You can see that Morgan is trying hard not to laugh. He was just acting, and it was hilarious!” someone else said.
Freeman, in fact, kept his rather stern façade during the entire interview, even when he was talking about his new hobby of beekeeping. “What I’ve discovered is I don’t have to put on the bee suit or anything to feed them,” he told Fallon, who promptly assured him that he was going to get stung making “rookie mistakes” like that.
Freeman assured Fallon that it was under control and that he knew a beekeeper who never wore a suit.
“They have the outfits for people who can’t resonate,” Freeman insisted.
Freeman stars in the movie “Lucy,” released this week.
