How much helium would it take to re-record March of the Penguins like this?
Morgan Freeman's voice is a national treasure, but that didn't stop Jimmy Fallon from messing with it on The Tonight Show. He interviewed Freeman while they both sucked helium out of baloons. There's a helium shortage in the world, but this might be the best possible use of it.Read More
This is, I'm told, is the voice he will use for the upcoming March of the Chipmunks.
Unusual situations often lead to new insights, Morgan Freeman says in this new promo for his Science Channel program, Through the Wormhole. So wait, what's the insight you get from breathing in a whole lot of helium? That it's fun and hilarious? We can get behind that.Read More

In a way this movie also features Marvel's Star-Lord, since Chris Pratt is voicing the lead character. The Lego Movie also features the voice talent of Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Will Ferrel, Liam Neeson, and yes, Morgan Freeman. Also did somebody just like, chuck a shark in that council scene?

Things We Saw Today
When you think of a physicist, what image comes to mind? An asocial nerd? Stephen Hawking? Me, I think of lab-haunting nerds scratching at chalkboards, drawing equations on restaurant napkins, or playing with lasers all day. But then, my father is a physicist -- worse, he was a military physicist, the most villainous brand of scientist you can imagine. And I'm here to tell you, they really can be nerdy. They're also smart and they know how to party. Case in point: Last night was the second annual Fundamental Physics Prize ceremony, a swanky gala funded by billionaire Yuri Milner that handed out $3 million as a top prize.Read More
Holy Rusted Metal Batman!
Batman got all of the DC Comics heroes to join him for the sequel to his first LEGO video game, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, but how would you like to sit back, relax, and watch their crazy hijinks without having to lift a finger? Now you can thanks to LEGO Batman The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite...which I had no idea was happening until now (apparently it was announced at NYCC). However, we did know Batman and Superman would be making an appearance in the LEGO movie hitting theaters February 2014 called Lego: The Piece of Resistance (starring Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, and Elizabeth Banks). While a lot of these scenes will look familiar to you, they are straight from the game, it is legit and will be released on blu-ray, DVD and digital download in early 2013. Are you excited? (via The Hollywood Reporter) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More

Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is so close I can taste it, and like many high-profile films these days, clips are coming at us left and right. (whether we want them to or not) The other day we posted one of Jim Gordon telling us who Batman is. Today, it's Morgan Freeman's Lucius Fox giving Bruce Wayne a look at some new tech. I suppose this could be considered a spoiler if you are trying to go in completely fresh and don't want to see any of Batman's new toys, so watch at your own risk. (via Empire)Read More
