Deep Thoughts With Morgan Freeman: The Mashup

When you see Morgan Freeman, maybe you see God. Or the president of the United States. Or Nelson Mandela, or a kindly old convict, chauffeur, boxing trainer or superhero's business manager. Because he's played all those roles, and he always seems to have the answers to everything, doesn't he? And that voice! We'd buy a bag of broken light bulbs if he only narrated the commercial.

Everything out of Morgan Freeman's mouth not only sounds wise, it Is wise -- and we have proof in this video compilation of every deep, life-changing line the man ever said. Get busy watching this mashup, or get busy dying.

Interview With Pen Densham on The Kiss (Joanna Pacula)

Pen Densham is the director behind The Kiss starring exotic beauty Joanna Pacula, ever so wholesome teen superstar Meredith Salenger, the legendary Jan Rubes and feature directing superstar Shawn Levy (Cheaper by the Dozen, Night at the Museum, and Date Night to name a few).

Billie Piper: the modern-day Moll Flanders

Billie Piper has played a prostitute in Secret Diary of a Call Girl, and the lead in Kay Mellor's A Passionate Woman, so she is no stranger to steamy parts. She reveals all in this candid interview

The first time I met Billie Piper, I was left feeling that I owed her an apology. She was heavily pregnant at the time, by husband, actor Laurence Fox, we got chatting about her birth options and I was perhaps a little too candid about what scenarios she might encounter, resulting in my glancing up at one point to be met with her huge caramel eyes, wide with trepidation.

Very bad form on my part: it really isn't on to scare first-time mums-to-be. What made it worse was that Piper had been great company – bright, open, witty, with a well-developed sense of the absurd – whether talking about her recent marriage to Fox,

Bill Tilden Biopic in the Works

Pen Densham has signed on to direct Big Bill, a feature about the self-destructive tennis legend Bill Tilden. Gil Dennis (Walk the Line) wrote the script, based on the Frank Deford book Big Bill: The Triumphs and the Tragedy. In the 1920s, Tilden won six straight U.S. Open singles titles, a feat that Roger Federer will try to surpass this month. Tilden's accomplishments -- including stints as a novelist, playwright and contract bridge champion -- were marred by his imprisonment twice for sexual misbehavior with teenage boys. He died broke. Tilden was the first American to win Wimbledon, and he led the U.S. Davis Cup team to six straight titles.
