Today In B'Days


Morgan Freeman, my geriatric ex-husband (alas, he finally got too "mature" for me) is 71.

I wish I can show you guys a clip from "Street Smart", which is by far my favorite Freeman role, where he played a pimp (he was nominated for an Oscar for it, but didn't win), but there were none to be found. So here he is in a movie that seems to be a staple on many a man's favorite movie list; "The Shawshank Redemption". It is a perfect snapshot of how absolutely amazing he can be as an actor.

HA! Yes indeed IW, I'm mighty afraid that I'm gonna have to stop dating Morgan on the side too. He's still cool as hell, but he had entered grandaddy papa-ville.

Wanda said...

IW, you are just dirty! lol. How are you going to leave Morgan in his golden years. Shame, shame, shame.

One of my favorite actors. My only concern is the fact that he has this money in his pocket yet he doesn't have any dental insurance.

What gives?

When it come to Morgan Freeman it is as if he can not do any wrong. His film making is incredible. I do not recall seeing a film that he was in that I did not appreciate.

Every time that I see his name on the marquee I am first in line to grab a ticket and take in his show.

Has anyone here ever seen Chain Reaction? It is a really good film with him in it and I think that you would really appreciate it.

Get back to me.
