Freeman Is Mandela

freeman.gifMorgan Freeman truly is one of the best actors working right now, probably one of the best actors to ever have acted, in my opinion, and it looks as though he’ll be taking his already amazing career to new heights. Variety is reporting that Freeman will be playing former South African President Nelson Mandela in The Human Factor, an independently financed drama, based on the upcoming John Carlin book The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Changed the World.

The film is set after the fall of apartheid, when South Africa was host to the 1995 Rugby World Cup. Mandela was in his first term as South African president, and he used the event as a way to end decades of mistrust and hatred between whites and blacks.

Of the role, Freeman said, “I have known Nelson Mandela personally for quite some time, and am continually in awe of his enormous presence in the world. The opportunity to portray him in this film is a great honor.”
