Stephen Colbert welcomed Bill Cosby to “The Colbert Report” Wednesday (Sept. 24) and talk turned to Colbert musing that since Cosby is such a legendary comedian, why hasn’t Morgan Freeman played him in a movie. Cosby’s reply is priceless.
“Morgan and I worked together on ‘The Electric Company,’ so I think out of respect, Morgan is waiting for me to die,” says Cosby, adding that Morgan calls to check up on him — and he also “worries” about Sydney Poitier and Harry Belafonte. “He’s not a happy man. … [Morgan] may have to play some people that nobody knows.”
Cosby goes on to tell a story in the kooky way he’s gotten into in his advanced years, but it’s still hilarious. Watch above.
