The Morgan Freeman Sexy Love super thread!

I was browsing the Bill Murray thread, and I had just watched SEVEN, and thought... Why isnt there a thread to a man the no mortal human being could possibly hate!

Morgan Freeman!

The man has acting skills of a Titan, and the Voice of an angel!

One of my very favourite actors. We can have a lot of fun with this thread. I'm also working on a Morgan Freeman impression too!


Now, even in his early days, the odd supporting role here or there, the guy STILL stook out like a sore thumb. For a long time he was always that name that would get that unique mention whenever I was talking about a film that included him. This is even before he became so big.

I could be here forever and a day talking about him, how he sometimes just seems to stand there on set and all the heavyweight Punky Power that an actor can exude is all there to see, blah blah blah, but I don't think I can do justice to him.


What I WILL do is say that I always wanted this guy to play more BAD GUYS! It infuriated me for a long time that this guy would be typecast into playing the good, noble type character, that no one seemed to have the imagination to let this HUMAN BEING explore all the other shades of himself. It's not like he doesn't have those emotions. Now, he is getting a few of these role apparently, though I have never seen his Gangster in Lucky Number Sltupid last word in the title.


Well, I was writing a script a few years back. It included a Religious Leader who was trying to do what he solely believed to be good, but in extraordinary Evil Ways. I basically was trying to mold him as a Bad Guy though. I had Morgan Freeman in mind for this, through and through.


Anyway, favourite Morgan Freeman role? To quote what Premiere Magazine said about him in Se7en, roughly.... 'He physically doesn't do that much (less than other roles) blah blah blah, but Morgan Freeman has never been this mighty and profound as he is here something or other'.

I'm hoping that one of these days he decides to branch out a bit...

Maybe play something like a mentor-type role...

I think he could pull it off...



Maybe he could play Liam Neeson...

Fooking Bastad!!

Heh, I can't talk, I always rant that it is HE, who should have gotten the Qui Goi Jinn part. But THEN play Bad Guys. Maybe a Evil Sith Lord in Prequel Prequels anyone!? Come on! Before he dies!

I would love for Morgan Freeman to just do a bunch of Books on tape. Hell, I'll listen to him read Dr. Susse for hours if thats all I get.

He's reason Number 2 why I love UNLEASHED so much.

Man, without blowing my own trumpet - I always had this dream as an Extra of being on a film set, hanging out with Morgan Freeman, making him laugh his head off - then having someone take a snap of it and letting me have it to frame on my table. I don't NORMALLY want such a thing from movie stars.


Shows my respect for the guy.

AND NOW WITH THE BATMAN SEQUEL, THIS MAY ACTUALLY HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!

He was gonna do a movie called Harry and the Butler with Anthony Hopkins. Freeman was gonna be a washed up down and out ex Jazz musician. Somehow or another he come into the fortune of a home and a butler in the shape of Hopkins who helps him get himself and career back on track. Then one day IMBD no longer lists this film. Such a shame. I REALLY wanted to see these 2 giants do this film onscreen together.

I very briefly met Morgan Freeman at an opening of a Golds Gym about 5 years ago. I just said hi and that I love his movies.. he said thanks and that was about it.

Still, little moments like that are what life's about.

I watched Se7en a few nights ago - this may be one of Freeman's finest roles, imo.

Easy Reader approves.

Check the rhymes, yo! He is all the waaay down, yo.

I envision a V for Vendetta type of scene, in which thousands march on Parliament wearing these uniforms:
