    No one works cotton candy like Morgan Freeman. Yeah.

    It appears that not even a nice cotton candy treat will cheer up a man who has “fought the good fight” and lost to the “Sisters”

    I would also like to add: “EZ Reader, that’s my name… Uh, uh uh….”

    Is it me or is Dennis Haysbert grooming himself to be the next great authoritative-voiced black actor? James Earl Jones was king of the mountain for decades, Morgan Freeman’s had the spot in the sun for some time, but that guy from the All State commercials is an up-and-comer. You heard it here first, folks.

    Am I the only one who thinks that picture is really sad? I mean look at him.

    The lil fella needs a hug!

  • 7 Constantine on May 9, 2009 at 1:16 am

    Haha… oh, now I feel bad.

  • 8 Erica on May 9, 2009 at 3:35 am

    He does look sad. But snazzy.

    That’s a bad Statue of Liberty impression.

    Now I can tell my mother what happened to her jacket.

    This is a publicity shot from Freeman’s newest flick, “Kottin Kandye”
    It’s about a suicidal cop in the big city who is only five days from retirement when his life is turned upside down by two criminal masterminds “Good & Plenty” who plan on releasing their nuclear device “The Everlasting Gobstopper” onto an unsuspecting metropolis. It’s directed by Mc. G (ummy bear).

    I hear it’s pretty good

    I think your post gave me diabetes.

    “I drove that old Jew-lady around for how many years and *this* is what she leaves me in her will? ‘Hoke, you’re my best friend,’ she says. My ass.”

    I’ve always heard Morgan was a bit “defensive” about his Easy Reader days. In fact, I think he’s saying in the picture, “Just call me ‘Easy Reader’ and I’ll show you people how easy I can stick this candyfloss down your readers!”

  • 15 Earl Fando on May 9, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    Either that or the London Games will be using pink torches.

  • 16 Erica on May 9, 2009 at 3:45 pm

    Really? I read he was proud of “The Electric Company.” Seems all of the people who were involved with it are. Except Mr. Rogers didn’t like it. But what about Naomi?

    Later Andy will meet my friend, Mr. Soap-On-A-Stick.

    Uwe presents his candy magnum opus. I hate that man.

  • 19 Earl Fando on May 10, 2009 at 11:34 am

    Maybe he’s mellowed since then? A few roles like The Bucket List can do that. Still, that photo…let’s just say I’m not sure that candyfloss was intentionally eaten by the eventual recipient.

    He’s gotta get past Keith David first.
