Morgan Freeman in it? Probably. :)

My  husband always says Morgan Freeman is 'in' everything.  I laugh at him (my husband, not the actor). It's not that he dislikes Morgan Freeman...how could you dislike someone so likeable, and who has such a smooth voice? It's just that he thinks he must be the busiest actor in Hollywood.

He's been in more movies than I can count, including InvictusShawshank Redemption, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Kiss the Girls, REDThe Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and Dolphin Tale (really, that's only to name a few). You see him on TV, hear him narrating, and I even heard him last week doing the voice in a commercial that aired during the Olympics.

Every time I hear his name when my husband and I are together, we instinctively look at each other and laugh.

Last weekend we took our youngest to see The Lego Movie. I knew right away, the second I heard Vitruvius talk...hubby for some reason, didn't catch it.  Little man likes to stay for the credits, when they started to roll, I told hubby to pay attention. He did, and I snapped the picture, buwahahahaha.


That's funny stuff in our household, where we're easily amused. :)

If asked to pick a favorite movie that Freeman has been in, I would be hard-pressed to do so because he really is a great actor who has played some great roles.

How about you, do you have a Morgan Freeman favorite?

I like Morgan Freeman a lot, too. My son wants to see the Lego movie. I'm not taking him. No, I'm not being mean. He's almost 26 years old and can take himself.

'Lean On Me' is my favorite Morgan Freeman movie. I thought I was the only one that notice he is in every movie you can think of. Lol

Justin Knight said...

I have been a fan of his since "Driving Miss Daisy". The guy can play any part! I like that you guys are "easily amused"! I think that's one of the keys to having a happy family!

buwahahahaha

alissa apel said...

That's so funny! He's probably been the actor that has died the most on facebook to. Poor Morgan Freeman. People are always picking on you.

Sandee said...

Well, he's likable and very employable. That's a good thing.

Have a fabulous Sunday. :)

Kristi Maloney said...

Shawshank Redemption. Great movie!!! Morgan Freeman was on the Electric Company - Easy Reader was his character I think! He's come a long way I'd say!! :)

Masshole Mommy said...

Haha -Morgan Freeman IS in everything, but he is an amazing actor, so he should be :)

Pat Hatt said...

Shawshank Redemption would win out if I had to pick. He is in everything though, him and Samuel L Jackson have a ton of movies, although the later makes many more that suck. And Glenn Morshower is in ever friggin tv show going.

Celebrity VIP Lounge said...

Morgan Freeman is so awesome. He is such a great talent.

Max Power said...

Loved him in Shawshank Redemption. Also love it when he does voice-overs like in the Lego movie.

I absolutely love Morgan Freeman! I knew that was him and I haven't even seen the movie, just the previews!

Some of my favorites from him are Shawshank Redemption, Bruce Almighty, Deep Impact, RED, Lean on Me, Seven, Along came a spider, Kiss the girls, etc etc etc. I adore him.

Karen Glatt said...

Morgan Freeman sure has been in a lot of movies! He seems to be everywhere. I have not seen a lot of his movies, but I have to say that I liked him in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. This is the first movie I have seen him in. He sure is a good actor though. I need to see more of his movies.

Rambling Momma said...

He is such a talented actor, which is why he is in so many movies. I can't just choose one favorite because he was great in all of them!

Morgan Freeman is a fantastic actor. Loved him in Shawshank Redemption, The Bucket List...there are so many others, it really seems like he is in everything. LOL

Morgan Freeman is amazing in all of his films! We loved the Lego Movie :)

Chatty Crone said...

I guess he has been in the movies with Bruce Willis in Red....

Holy Ghost Writer said...

He has been in so many movies it would be hard to name them all

Tatiana Diaz said...

Haha. I agree with your husband he is in EVERYTHING. I believe he is trying to single handedly take over the world one movie at a time. :P

Heather Jones said...

Oh gosh, I love Morgan Freeman. I guess the most recent I've seen him in is the Dark Knight Rises. I also loved him in Dolphin Tale.

Cheriese said...

Oh this is so cute!! I love to hear little amusements like this!
I looooved Morgan Freeman in Driving Miss Daisy, and as God in Bruce Almighty/Evan Almighty hehe x

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

It does seem like Morgan Freeman is in a lot of films and commercials. I think he has amazing presence and that is probably why...

Ashley said...

I love Morgan Freeman! He is one of the actors hubs and I actually agree on! It is great to have inside jokes like that too :)

Pam said...

Hands down The Shawshank Redemption would be my favorite but there are so many. He is a great actor.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Rosey .. glad you saw the Lego Movie - I think I need to see it now .. and Morgan Freeman is the consummate actor, with a beautiful voice ..

Cheers Hilary

Terra Heck said...

Morgan Freeman is one of my favorite actors. He's a legend. I've been wanting to see the Lego movie. Looks cute.

Mary said...

Love when you catch little things like that. And how cool!

Henrietta said...

I love Morgan Freeman and anything that he plays God or the President in, is golden :)

Mama to 5 said...

Love him! My favorite movie he's in in Shaw Shank Redemption !

KathleenKL said...

Now that's pretty funny----your husband I mean--love Morgan too! he's a great actor and always enjoy his movies

Anonymous said...

He has been in so many good ones. Shawshank would be my favorite. When he finds Tim Robbins at the end of the movie, it gets me every time. I also love Kiss the Girls & High Crimes is a good one. Like I said too many.

Kristie said...

I've never noticed that he is in so much! We did just see Last Vegas and it reminded me that while I was in Vegas someone we were with saw him at the pool at the Aria. I'm guessing they must have been filming the movie at the time (Fall of 2012) because they were staying at the Aria in the movie too! :-) I thought it was funny I just realized the conneciton while watching the movie and yet it never crossed my mind through all the previews I saw of the movie.

Colette S said...

This is funny! I know and recognize his voice in everything! You can't miss it! Haha. There are a few actors and actresses like that. Esp Julia....um can't remember her last name, but she is really good. Julia...gah! Anyway you get my meaning! :)

Unknown said...

That's too funny. In our house, it's Jason Bateman. I swear he must be the hardest working actor in Hollywood. He's everywhere.

Kenya G. Johnson @ KenyaGJohnson.com said...

I have actually watched a movie because Morgan Freeman was in it. He could read to me all day long. I love his voice. Shawshank has probably got to be my favorite since he talked A LOT. But the one I picked on Netflix recently was The Magic of Belle Isle. It probably wouldn't have grabbed me right off if he wasn't in it, but it was a really good movie.

Eliz Frank said...

Hysterical... I do love Morgan Freeman ; he is such a versatile actor too.

Susan Zutautas said...

LOL, That's funny! I'm a huge Morgan Freeman fan. Thanks for linking up Rosey!

Marielle Altenor said...

I love Morgan Freeman as an actor. He's really good at what he does! And he has one of those voices that are hard not to recognized! My son and I saw the preview for the Lego Movie. I may take him this weekend if it is playing somewhere near by!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Morgan Freeman is one of my all time favorite actors. I really couldn't pick a favorite, but I will always watch The Bucket List and Shawshank Redemption every time those come on tv.

Amanda McMahon said...

I'll agree with you here! Shawshank Redemption definitely had me! But overall, hard to pick.

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

I love Morgan Freeman, he has such a recognizable voice. And yes he was in the Lego movie. I caught it this weekend and I am thinking it is slightly overrated. My 12 year old son disagrees of course. He thought it was amazing. Oh well...that's why I am not a movie critic

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

Lol, I liked shares hank but the kids would say Dark Knight.

Heather @ The Beating Hearth said...

I do enjoy me some Morgan Freeman as well. His voice is great and iconic. I actually fell asleep during the Lego Movie. urggh. I am my mother's daughter.

Melissa Pezza said...

Very funny! Morgan Freeman is amazing! Such a versatile actor!

Growing Up Madison said...

I love Morgan Freeman and I would have to say my favorites are Shawshank Redemption and Driving Miss Daisy. :)

Judy SheldonWalker said...

Me too. Hubby and I love him in Driving Miss Daisy. He is good in absolutely everything - so versatile and such a smooth voice.

Suzan Sweatman said...

I could just melt into that man's voice - it has to be the nicest Hollywood voice out there, really ! AND I think he's incredibly gifted as an actor - one of the best.
LOVED him in Shawshank Redemption - Driving Miss Daisy - Gone baby Gone - actually everything I've ever seen ( or heard ) him in !
xox

ha ha ha

HE IS IN EVERYTHING :)

Deb (dubbage42) said...

I adore Morgan Freeman - and yes! He's in everything! LOL
(Good for him, and good for us!)

mail4rosey said...

We'll blame that on Freeman's soothing voice. ;) My husband usually falls asleep at any event where it gets dark, but he stayed up for this one. :)
