Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman, one of the most-recognizable actors in American cinema, has enrolled in Oprah Winfrey‘s  cable show “Master Class.”

First Look: Oprah’s Master Class with Morgan Freeman

On the show, Morgan, who is best-known for his explosive performances in “Street Smarts” and “Lean on Me,” shares some riveting moments of his illustrious 45-year acting career. The recipient of countless prestigious acting awards, Freeman opens up about those not so glamorous days before he hit it big:

At one point I was very broke living on on the streets, eating stale donuts.  When you are put out of someplace and you’re on the street, how you gonna pay the rent?  I didn’t get any work so I thought I had better start thinking of better ways to make a living.

Morgan decided to leave the military and pursue his love of film — a move that he has never regretted. One of Morgan’s gifts is infusing a quiet dignity into his roles, such as “Hoke Colburn” in “Driving Miss Daisy” or “Nelson Mandela” in “Invictus.”

Of his success, the 74-year-old actor adds:

You always make the choice of the road you take but it always splits.  When you have made your choice, it is providence that is your guide, good bad or indifferent, your faith lies in that.

You can watch Morgan and the talk show diva extraordinaire sit a spell on Sunday, January 22, at 10:00 p.m. EST on the OWN channel.
