Long time prisoner Morgan Freeman has said he is delighted that penpal Nelson Mandela will play him in a new Spielberg blockbuster Hollywood film. Speaking from his maximum security prison cell Freeman said "I'm delighted"
Morgan Freeman best known for his mega U.S TV series the Cosby show was indicted in 1984 for laundry of his pants in a public place. In prison he meet and befriended a convict who later escaped behind a poster of Sam Fox in which Freeman later said "i was only looking at the tits, not the shovel we had"
Nelson Mandela had said in a earlier interview: "This brother is my hero, my everything, the man I need to show the world about his struggle, how much do I get?"
It was even acknowledged at prime minister question time that Mandela was coming out of retirement to play Freeman, which the house gave a big cheer including ex prime minister Dale Winton, who was sitting in the gallery with pink trousers and a vest on. Filming starts in the summer with other big actors, names such as...the bloke out of Eastenders who walks on with a bald head and a farmer from the hit Emmerdale.
