MORGAN FREEMAN's (God) extensive feature film credits include Brubaker, Eyewitness, Harry & Son, Teachers, Marie, That Was Then…This Is Now, Street Smart (for which he won the Los Angeles, New York and National Society of Film Critics Awards for Best Supporting Actor of 1987, and was nominated for both Golden Globe and Academy Awards®), Clean and Sober, Johnny Handsome, Glory, Driving Miss Daisy (for which Freeman earned his second Academy Award® nomination as well as a Golden Globe Award and Silver Bear for Best Actor at the Berlin Film Festival in recreating the role that he created on stage), Chain Reaction and Paramount's adventure Hard Rain. In 1993, Freeman made his feature directorial debut with Bopha!, starring Danny Glover and Alfre Woodard and soon thereafter formed Revelations Entertainment, a production company developing entertainment product in all existing and emerging media that "enlightens, inspires and glorifies the human experience.”

The Shawshank Redemption, based on a Stephen King novella, brought Freeman his third Academy Award® nomination. He also starred as abolitionist Theodore Joadson in Steven Spielberg's Amistad; as the President of the United States in the box office hit Deep Impact; and opposite Ashley Judd in the highly successful thriller Kiss the Girls. Neil LaBute's Nurse Betty, which saw Freeman performing with Chris Rock and Renée Zellweger, was released to critical acclaim in 2000. Freeman then reprised his Kiss the Girls role as Alex Cross in Along Came a Spider, which was a box-office smash in the spring of 2001. Freeman again starred with Ashley Judd in Carl Franklin's High Crimes; performed opposite Ben Affleck in the hit action thriller The Sum of All Fears, based on the Tom Clancy novel; starred alongside Billy Bob Thornton, Kirsten Dunst and Holly Hunter in the independent film Levity, which was selected to open the 2003 Sundance Film Festival; performed in Dreamcatcher, also based on a work by Stephen King; and The Big Bounce, a thriller based on a novel by Elmore Leonard. Freeman costarred in Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination, a SAG Award and an Academy Award® for Best Supporting Actor.

Other recent credits include Luc Besson's Unleashed, opposite Jet Li; An Unfinished Life, opposite Robert Redford and Jennifer Lopez; Batman Begins; and the Academy Award®-nominated March of the Penguins, which he narrated. Freeman most recently starred in Lucky Number Slevin, with Bruce Willis and Josh Hartnett; 10 Items or Less, with Paz Vega; and The Contract, with John Cusack. Recently, he finished production on Rob Reiner's The Bucket List, co-starring Jack Nicholson.

Currently, Freeman is filming the fantasy-thriller Wanted for Universal Pictures, with Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy; and will reprise his role as Lucius Fox in the next installment of the Batman series for Warner Bros., The Dark Knight.
