Morgan Freeman is such a good sport. When Jimmy Fallon asked him to suck on a helium balloon during Thursday’s “Tonight Show” interview, the velvet-voiced actor obliged. And we’re so glad that he did.

“I do love your voice and everyone loves your voice," Fallon told the “Lucy” star, “but I was wondering what your voice would sound like on helium. I'll do the same interview, I'll just do it on helium.”

Freeman feigned distress.

Before he took his first drag of helium he looked at Fallon and said: “I really shouldn’t be doing this. It's very undignified.”

Yep, it was. And it was great.
