Oh, no!

After seeing the Dark Knight last night, G-Dog and I were talking about how Morgan Freeman seems to be ageless -- he's in his seventies, but doesn't really show it at all, and has been playing a full range of characters and ages his whole career. But he has apparently just been taken to the hospital after a pretty wicked one-car accident.

He's a great actor, with both a stunning presence and and incredible voice. I do hope he's ok. (First Heath Ledger dies, then Christian Bale gets arrested [for beating on his mama, no less!], and now Freeman. If I believed in that sort of stuff, I'd wonder about the dark cloud hanging over the cast of that movie...)

UPDATE: "[H]e'll be OK and is looking forward to a full recovery." Whew.

I love Morgan Freeman! Glad he'll recover. He is one of those actors who can be the sole reason I see a movie.

It was all over the Memphis news last night because he went to the hospital there. Glad to hear he's gonna be okay...such a GREAT talent!
