The distinguished voice of the veteran actor gets a makeover for the fifth season of Through the Wormhole, which returns on June 4.

When you think of Morgan Freeman, you can picture him in dozens of movies, such as Lucius Fox in the Christopher Nolan Batman films, God in Bruce Almighty, or as Red in the Shawshank Redemption. His relaxing baritone has been used to narrate numerous films and documentaries, from March of the Penguins to Conan the Barbarian to War of the Worlds. But one thing you probably hadn’t visualized is the distinguished actor narrating a show … on helium.

The Science Channel made him do just that for the next season of Through the Wormhole, a science documentary on the universe and its mysteries. And while the sound is comedic and unexpected, it fits perfectly with his introduction to the episode on the unexpected effects of gravity in unusual places.

What makes this intro even more funny is Freeman trying hard to stifle a laugh after he does his second intake of helium. Check it out for yourself.
