Better keep up, we only had 60 seconds to squeeze in some seriously important questions. That's right, we're talking breakfast foods, bucket lists and favorite super hero!

Morris Chestnut: Egg whites and turkey bacon-- oh! And oatmeal.

Weekend Express: Coffee or tea in the mornings?
Morris Chestnut: Neither!
Weekend Express: Neither?! How do you stay caffeinated in the mornings?

Morris Chestnut: I don't think I have one!
Weekend Express: C'mon, Morris! NO guilty pleasure TV shows or movies?
Morris Chestnut: I know, I know-- but I don't think so! I'm a big sports fan, so I watch a lot of sports.

Weekend Express: Do you have a diet you stick to or do you just eat whatever you want?
Morris Chestnut: I wish I could eat whatever I wanted! I stick to a lot of egg whites, turkey, chicken, vegetables....but I have a huge sweet tooth. It's what always kills my diet. It's crazy! I'll eat egg whites, turkey and everything clean-- and then I'll eat a ton of desserts!

Morris Chestnut: Anything chocolate-- almonds, ice cream, anything. I love chocolate almonds!

Weekend Express: Okay, quick—what are three things people would be surprised if they knew about you?
Morris Chestnut: I'm very shy and I'm very boring-- I think people would be surprised to know that. I like to play poker a lot and play sports.

Weekend Express: What'd you do for your wife for Valentine's Day?
Morris Chestnut: We're going out to dinner tonight. I've been out of town, so I have to make it up for it this weekend!

Weekend Express: Who is your favorite super hero?
