I just saw "Driving Miss Daisy" for the first time. What a wonderful movie. Morgan Freeman is my favorite actor. Who is your favorite actor/actress?

He's an actor. Who cares about his politics? He's not running for office. Sometimes, I hate that we know so much about actor's private lives. I just want to enjoy the performances. He is always great on screen! Also like Cumberbatch and Chris Evans.

I've always had a thing for Rob Lowe. The new Dish commercials he's in are amazingly funny.

That was a great movie. I love Morgan Freeman in Shawshank Redemption too & highly recommend it if you haven't seen it.

On to favorite actor & actress -- maybe Tom Hanks & Julia Roberts. I've seen and really enjoyed almost all of their movies.

I'll concur, but add Kevin Spacey, Kevin Kline, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Robert Downey Jr., James Spader, James Earl Jones, Malcolm MacDowell, and so many more. And then there are the actresses! But be watching for Tom Laney III in a few years!

But his private life was questionable. They really were actors. I liked Bette Davis too but I think she was a bitch irl too. I loved her in All About Eve. She was a hoot.

There were some rumors about his personal life which he flatly denied and other than having a roommate for a while, all evidence points to the contrary. People will always start rumors about the great ones.

Have either of you ever seen The Ghost and Mrs Muir? Rex Harrison plays a ghost who charmingly haunts a lovely woman played by Gene Tierney. I love that one. :)

Yes I saw ghost. I did not like Wuthering Heights. That was horrible. Hated it. I never liked Vivian Leigh.

There was an all-black remake of The Bishop's wife a few years ago, and it was excellent too!

That was The Preacher's Wife with Denzel Washington, if I recall.

That's a great movie, Yuke! And though not my favorite (If I have one, it's probably a cartoon character!), he's a great actor, such a natural...

Dude! I can't believe that you hadn't seen Driving Miss Daisy before. That's a great movie! I couldn't say that I have a favorite actor anymore. I just don't care that much about Hollywood. We don't go to a lot of movies.

I absolutely have no respect for Freeman. Freeman says the tea party is the “weak, dark underside of America” and will do whatever to “get this black man (Obama) outta here!”

Yeah, I don't like his politics, but he's an outstanding actor.

Besides, you have to give freeman some leeway for having been raised in that sorta thinking. Soooo many blacks have yet to find their way off the Democrat plantation. Eventually they'll learn about and value individual liberty.

Sorry, Yukon! I don't support affirmative action. Blacks don't get a pass. :)
