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

    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 :no:

    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...

    "
    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.

    Hopefully they need a message to help them heal. I volunteer.


    On the Morgan Freeman deal. Maybe Morgan should quit playing god in movies.

    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.

    It surprises you because...? Well, it shouldn't even offend you - because that's just par for the course there. But the best part was the misspelling - can't even make a dumb, inappropriate "joke" correctly!

    But, you and I will soon be labeled as high-horse riders...

    Giddy up!

    I figured he was volunteering to massage Morgan Freeman... That's just creepy.

    Are you saying this happened to him because he played god in movies? Or am I misunderstanding you?

    This thread has quickly evolved into ill-advised comments towards cancer and god.

    I expect over 100 posts.
