When you think of Morgan Freeman, what comes to mind? An unbelievable actor, likely his role in ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ and a silky smooth baritone voice in which you could probably listen to for hours. Well, he was on the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon this week… you’ve never heard Morgan like this before!

simpsonsfamilyguy
In their 25 seasons, The Simpsons have only ever crossed over once. The crossover happened back in 1995 in their 6th season when the Simpsons decided to hold a Film Festival in which film critic Jay Sherman (the Critic) is invited to be a judge. This fall, Family Guy and Simpsons fans will rejoice and finally bury the hatchet. In the Simpsons season premier, The Griffins from Family Guy travel to Springfield. The trailer for the season opener debuted at Comic Con in San Diego over the weekend.
