Morgan Freeman appeared with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Friday night to promote his upcoming appearance on the season 2 premiere of Madam Secretary, an episode he also directed.

Since Freeman is known for playing some memorable characters, Colbert asked the actor to give some iconic movie lines the “Morgan Freeman Run.”

Channeling Rose from Titanic, Freeman said: “Draw me like one of your French girls.” Freeman also recited the famous Vin Diesel one-liner from Guardians of the Galaxy, declaring that he too was Groot.

And finishing off his re-enactments, Freeman didn’t so much as say a line from Home Alone, but recited the plot synopsis from Kevin McCallister’s point of view.

“Oh no! It’s Christmas and I’m a small boy who’s been left home alone!” Freeman said, before making the famous hands-to-face shocked expression (photo above).
