The Shawshank Redemption star has pledged to undertake a good deed for 67 minutes for 'Nelson Mandela Day' as part of a global initiative to encourage philanthropy.

The former South African President is urging those to want to celebrate his birthday to mirror his 67 years of philanthropic work, and Morgan will be heading to a school in Britain to read stories to a classroom of kids aged under 12.

He tells Sky News, "I am going to go to a school, I don't know which one yet, and I will be reading to them."
