    Morgan Freeman is a great actor.But I doubt if the Mandela film would make a great matrial for Hollywood as Id Amin did.

    I thoght morgan Freeman is too old for any major role.Samuel L.Jackson could have made a more convincing Mandela.they are both tall.

    Thanks God, Hollywood didn’t go after Mengistu or Charles Taylor.Mandela is the best thing that happen to Africa.And a film about him will be a worthwile thing.And I agree with Yemi, Morgan Freeman will make a perfect Mandela.Who can esle can have this remote yet omnipresent, self-contained yet smiling cinematic presence?
