LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Morgan Freeman stars alongside Jack Nicholson in the new dramedy, “The Bucket List.”
The veteran actor sat down with Access Hollywood to talk all about working with Jack.
For starters, the Oscar winner said he could barely keep his feet on the ground when a dream collaboration with the fellow Oscar winner came his way.
“I [was] just trying to act nonchalant instead of walking around jumping up and down every minute or so,” Morgan told Access.
As it turns out,it may have been Morgan who actually roped Jack into Rob Reiner’s latest film.
“Rob told me he didn’t want to do the movie unless I did it and I told him I didn’t want to do it unless Jack did it,” Morgan recounted. “And to have the opportunity to dance with him — that’s what acting really is. It’s just walking around inside of a dream.”
And with that goal achieved, does Nicholson come off Morgan’s personal “Bucket List?”
“I didn’t mark him off, I just moved him down,” Morgan said.
