  1. This is nearly perfect. It very occasionally goes ‘Cleveland”

  2. Bookburn says:

    It would be a shame not to include Jim Meskimen in your Morgan Freeman throw-down.

  3. Jim Schmidt says:

    Better than the Gilbert Gottfreid reading, even though Gilbert actually read it!

    Imagine it . . . a show of Morgan Freeman impersonators lined up behind podiums, like in ‘The Vagina Monologues’. . .  or the Republican debates (erp!), taking turns reading from ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.

    When can I buy a ticket?  I don’t care where.

    maybe the real Morgan Freeman would do it ? someone recently spotted him here in the audience of a Bobby Rush booty shaking contest just after the 30:40 mark ;

    I love that so many of these faux-readings are coming from men, but seriously, can’t we get some awesome ladies reading this?  I mean, the central narrator is a woman.  Kathleen Turner?  Judy Tenuta?  Dr. Ruth?

      I believe that’s the point.  It just makes it sound that much worse when it’s not only a famous person narrating it, but also narrating it as the opposite gender of who is supposed to be narrating.

    Josh Robert Thompson also voices Geoff Peterson, the robot skeleton sidekick on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, where he busts out the Morgan Freeman impression on a quite regular basis.

    The best part of this isn’t the fact Morgan Freeman is reading 50 Shades, it’s his internal/external monologue with the himself/audience.  It’s pure comedy gold.

    The video link is removed, unfortunately…
