Morgan Freeman Explains the Universe on 'The Daily Show'Actor Morgan Freeman appeared on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). While on the show, he promoted 'Through the Wormhole With Morgan Freeman,' a science special that tries to explain the origin of the universe. And really -- who could better explain the universe than the man who once played God in a movie?

Freeman discussed the cosmos with a highly confused Jon Stewart. He attempted to explain such concepts as "dark matter" and the rapid expansion of the galaxy. In the end though, Jon had a very simple question for Mr. Freeman. Jon wanted to know this -- now that Morgan has studied all these hard science-y questions, does he feel more comfortable with the idea of the universe?

Mr. Freeman had a good answer prepared: in the end, it doesn't matter. The universe will be around for much longer than he will, so in essence, who cares if he's "comfortable" with it? This answer cracked Jon Stewart up. And once again, Morgan Freeman ended up sounding like the wisest person ever.
