Morgan Freeman : Your favorite Morgan Freeman roles

Your favorite Morgan Freeman roles

I grew up watching him on the Electric Company. Watched it everyday from around 6yrs old to 10. He was the best part of it. Hes been apart of my entire life. He's one of my favorite actors. What are your favorite roles hes played? My list and why


1)Invictus-Nelson Mendela

He morphed right into Mendela in that movie. Biggest ripe off of all time how he didnt win an oscar for best supporting actor for that one. I love that movie mainly due to him.

2)Lean on me-Principle Joe Clark

So inspiring in this. Showed he was a lead man, an a great actor.

3)Shawshank Redemption. "Red"

Another inspiring role. Another rob of an oscar. I hope Andy and Red created a nice little resort in Mexico, they deserved it.

4)Glory Sgt Major John Rawlings.

The scene where he put Denzel in his place was amazing acting by both. One of my favorite movies of all time.

5) Million Dollar Baby Scraps

Played the role of a broke down fighter so well. So funny how he could get under Clint's skin in that movie. Loved it when he decked Anothey Mackies character.

6)Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Azeem

What a great man in that. A complete badass with a scimitar, can do a c section to deliver a baby, and get fresh water to a village. Morgan and the late great Alan Rickman made that movie.

7)Se7en Sommerset

He just makes a great cop. Intelligent and devoid of emotion in that movie.

8)Bruce Almighty God

He was funny in it. Shows hes more then just a character actor. I would have no problem if hes there on my judgement day

9)Unforgiven Ned Logan

He really was a good man stuck in a bad situation. Once again, stoled the show from Clint. Then again an Orangatan stoled the show from Clint twice.

10)This was then This is now Charlie Woods.

Havent seen this movie in a long time. Underrated 80's film. Stoled the show again.


For some stupid reason I have never seen Driving Miss Daisy. Dont know why, love history movies. I never see it on HBO anymore. Why that role isnt on the list.


Thoughts, other great roles I am missing?






Lawrence of Arbia, he was an English guy who came to fight the Turkish

SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION

Re: Your favorite Morgan Freeman roles

Shawshank, a very smart man who found another very smart man and decided to be friends with him.

Driving Miss Daisy, as an accomplished black actor he chose to portray someone like his great grandfather would have been. That took courage. He decided to show that Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat
