Headline: A Mature Thespian is to Eat Crow

I love Morgan Freeman, don't get me wrong, but somewhere, right now, he's eating a nice big helping of crow. You see, when I went to the screening of HUSTLE & FLOW late last year, Terrence Howard explained to the crowd how he'd just meet Morgan Freeman hours earlier, in which he asked the mature thespian if he would help him create an Oscar Buzz about his film. He was told: "Young fellow, the Academy will never nominate you for a role in which you're playing a pimp! You might as well give up now."

Good thing Terrence didn't give up!...

Score for the underdogs.
