Trivia / Morgan Freeman

  • Old Shame: Don't ask Morgan Freeman about playing Easy Reader on The Electric Company (1971). He doesn't want to talk about it.
  • Star-Derailing Role: Yes, he actually did have a couple of these. Moll Flanders and Chain Reaction bombed at the box office (somewhat averted with the latter, thanks to overseas gross) and were poorly received, resulting in Freeman's star power falling for about seven years after that.
