    Morgan Freeman in Serious Car Accident

    There's not much information out there right now. Just that it happened around 11:30 last night, the hospital said his condition is serious, and alcohol is not believed to be involved.

    Update: According to his publicist, he suffered a broken arm and shoulder. Expected to make a "good recovery." It was a one car accident. It sounds like the car flipped over a few times.

    Good to hear that he will make a good recovery. I really like his acting.

    Re: Morgan Freeman in Serious Car Accident

    I just watched the Bucket List the other night. What a strange twist of irony that would've been if it had been wors3. He's got one of the best voices in movies, for sure...

    From Easy Reader to Shawshank to The Dark Knight, he's always been one of my favorite actors. Hope he gets well soon.

    Seems like Dark Knight has a Dark cloud... Ledger dead, Bale arrested for domestic violence, and now this.

    I think Hollywood in general has a dark cloud. Christina Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer recently and Shia with his car accident.

    That is awful. How could that happen to such a beautiful set of breasts? It's a sad day in Bundyland

    Well lucky for you and her, they caught it early and its treatable, but still, cancer is a tricky deal.

    Freeman was also very good in Gone Baby Gone, even if it was a relatively small roll...

    Re: Morgan Freeman in Serious Car Accident

    "
    Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesperson Ben Williams said Freeman and a female passenger were traveling eastbound on Mississippi Highway 32 in Tallahatchie County when his vehicle went off the edge of the road. Freeman overcorrected, flipping his 1997 Nissan Maxima several times before coming to a rest."

    Got to give him credit. He was driving a 97 Maxima. Not flaunty at all for a celeb. Freeman, is just a cool guy all around.

    These things happen all the time in the "real world" to "real people." You just hear about them more often when they happen to famous people, and it just so happens that they've happened to famous people a little more than usual lately (or at least it seems that way).

    Wow. On behalf of cancer survivors everywhere, may I just say that is one of the most offensive things I've ever heard.
