With a wise, genial presence that made him the perfect fit to play presidents and even gods, Morgan Freeman was a true fan favorite. Born in Tennessee in 1937, Freeman moved often throughout his childhood, living in Mississippi and Indiana before eventually settling in Chicago, Illinois. He began performing in school plays at age nine and by 12, he was performing on a Nashville based radio show. After graduating high school, Freeman served for four years in the United States Air Force and was honorably discharged with the rank of Airman 1st Class. He decided to return to his interest in performing at this point, moving to Los Angeles where he could study acting at the Pasadena Playhouse. His early breaks included a role in a touring production of "The Royal Sea Hunt" and a handful of appearances as an extra in films like "The Pawnbroker" (1964) and "A Man Called Adam" (1966) before he finally began booking on-screen speaking roles, appearing in the TV movie "Caught in the Middle" (1970) and soon joining the cast of the progressive kids program "The Electric Company" (PBS, 1971-77) in 1971. The actor's credits became steadily more prominent after that series wrapped in 1977, with him appearing with Robert Redford in the prison drama "Brubaker" (1980) and with Nick Nolte in the comedy-drama "Teachers" (1984). Freeman made waves in 1987 when he played a fast talking pimp in the drama "Street Smart" (1987), earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. The role put him on Hollywood's radar. In 1989 alone, he played Sergeant Major John Rawlins in the Civil War drama "Glory" (1989), a highly unconventional principal at a disadvantaged school in the drama "Lean on Me" (1989), and a chauffeur who strikes up an unexpected friendship with an elderly woman in "Driving Miss Daisy" (1989), for which he earned his second Academy Award nomination. He followed this banner year with roles in the blockbuster "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" (1991) and the gritty Western "Unforgiven" (1992) before earning a third Oscar nod, this time for his role as the second lead as well as the narrator in the inspiring drama "The Shawshank Redemption" (1994). In 1995, Freeman co-starred with Brad Pitt as a detective investigating a serial killer in the acclaimed crime drama "Se7en" (1995). He went on to play the president of the United States in "Deep Impact" (1998) and God himself in the comedy "Bruce Almighty" (2003), before finally winning an Oscar for his role as a boxing coach in the Clint Eastwood directed drama "Million Dollar Baby" (2004). Freeman continued to appear in several projects per year for the next several years, memorably reprising the role of God in "Evan Almighty" (2007), as well as appearing in "Gone Baby Gone" (2007), "Wanted" (2008), the blockbuster "Dark Knight" (2008) franchise, and the true life soccer drama "Invictus" (2009)-for which he earned yet another Oscar nod. Freeman played the president once again in the action movie "Olympus Has Fallen" (2013) and made an unexpected but memorable appearance as Ilderim in the big-budget remake of "Ben-Hur" (2016). While also appearing in films like "Just Getting Started" (2017) and "The Poison Rose" (2019), Freeman also reprised his role as President Trumbull for the "Olympus Has Fallen" sequels "London Has Fallen" (2016) and "Angel Has Fallen" (2019).

Secretary of Defense Ruth McMillan says: How's my hair?

Speaker Allan Trumbull says: Not a hair out of place!

President Benjamin Asher says: Not a hair out of place!

William Somerset says: I am hugely overrated.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: What about getting back into the plane?

Lucius Fox says: I'd recommend a good travel agent.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: Without it landing.

Lucius Fox says: Now that's more like it, Mr. Wayne.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: I figured you'd have shut this place down.

Lucius Fox says: Well, it was always shut down, officially.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: What about all this new stuff?

Lucius Fox says: After your father died, Wayne Enterprises set up fourteen different defense subsidiaries. For years I've been shuttering and consolidating all the different prototypes under one roof. My roof.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Why?

Lucius Fox says: To keep them from falling into the wrong hands.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Oh, now you're showing off.

Lucius Fox says: Defense Department project for tight-geometry and pacification. Rotors are configured to maneuver between buildings without recirculation.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: What's it called?

Lucius Fox says: Oh, it has a long uninteresting Wayne Enterprises designation. I just took to calling it the Bat. And yes, Mr. Wayne, it does come in black. Works fine, except for the autopilot. It takes a better mind than mine to fix it.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Better mind?

Lucius Fox says: Well, I was trying to be modest. A less busy mind. Yours.

Miranda Tate says: You brought me out here to show me this, Mr. Fox?

Lucius Fox says: Bear with me, Miss Tate. Please keep hands and feet inside the car at all times.

Miranda Tate says: [Fox uses a button and the office floor descends] This is it, isn't it?

Miranda Tate says: This is it, isn't it?

Lucius Fox says: The reactor is beneath the river so it could be instantly flooded in the event of a security breach.

Miranda Tate says: Is Bruce Wayne really that paranoid?

Lucius Fox says: I'm gonna plead the fifth on that one.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: You were on the board?

Lucius Fox says: When your father ran things, yeah.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: You knew my father?

Lucius Fox says: Oh, yeah. Helped him build his train. Ah, here we are. Kevlar utility harness. Gas-powered magnetic grapple gun. The three hundred and fifty pound test monofilament. Wonderful project, your dad's train. Routed it right into Wayne Tower along with the water and power utilities. Kind of made Wayne Tower the unofficial centre of Gotham City. Of course, Earle let it go to rot. Here we are. Nomex survival suit for advanced infantry. Kevlar biweave, reinforced joints.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: Bruce Wayne.

Earle says: What makes you think you can decide who's running Wayne Enterprises?

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: Well, the fact that I'm the owner.

Earle says: What are you talking about? The company went public a week ago.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: And I bought most of the shares - through various charitable foundations, and trusts, and so forth. Look, it's all a bit technical, but the important thing is that *my* company's future is secure. Right, Mister Fox?

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: And I bought most of the shares - through various charitable foundations, and trusts, and so forth. Look, it's all a bit technical, but the important thing is that my company's future is secure. Right, Mister Fox?

Earle says: Right you are, Mister Wayne.

Lucius Fox says: Didn't you get the memo?

Earle says: Fox? I seem to remember firing you.

Lucius Fox says: You did. I got another job: Yours.

Earle says: On whose authority?

Earle says: On who's authority?

Lucius Fox says: My security clearance has been revoked.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: That wouldn't stop a man like you, would it?

Lucius Fox says: I suppose not.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: Look, Mr. Fox.

Lucius Fox says: Yes, sir?

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: If you're uncomfortable...

Lucius Fox says: Mr. Wayne, if you don't want to tell me exactly what you're doing......when I'm asked, I don't have to lie. But don't think of me as an idiot.

Lucius Fox says: Mr. Wayne, if you don't want to tell me exactly what you're doing. When I'm asked, I don't have to lie. But don't think of me as an idiot.

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: Fair enough.

Miranda Tate says: Bruce!

Miranda Tate says: You okay?

Lucius Fox says: You picked a hell of a time to go on vacation, Mr. Wayne.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: [to Fox] Tonight I need you.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Tonight I need you.

Lucius Fox says: What for?

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: To get me back in the game.

Selina Kyle says: Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane wants these guys to himself.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: [Bruce looks at Miranda] I won't forget about you, Miranda.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: I won't forget about you, Miranda.

Miranda Tate says: I know.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: How long until that core ignites?

Lucius Fox says: That bomb goes off in twelve hours.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Unless we can reconnect it to the reactor.

Lucius Fox says: Can you get Miranda out of here?

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Not tonight. I'm sorry.

Miranda Tate says: Do what's necessary.

Fox says: I like your girlfriend, Mr. Wayne.

Selina Kyle says: He should be so lucky.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Any move I make on Bane or the bomb, the triggerman sets it off.

Lucius Fox says: But they won't use radio or cell, too much interference. Infrared doesn't have the range. It would have to be a micro-burst, long wave.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Could you block it?

Lucius Fox says: Yes. But I'll need the EMP cannon-guidance mount from the Bat. Remember where you parked?

Ellis Boy "Red" Redding says: Young Punk. Mr. "Rock and Roll." Cocky as hell. We liked him immediately.

Ellis Boy "Red" Redding says: I tell you, those voices soared. Higher and farther than anyone in a gray place dares to dream.

Ellis Boy "Red" Redding says: Get busy living, get busy dying.

Ellis Boy "Red" Redding says: I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I? don't wanna know. I would like to think they were singing about some thing was so beautiful it cant be expressed in words and make your heart ache because of it.I tell you this voice soared higher and farther than anybody in a Gray place dares to dream it is like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made these walls dissolve away. For the briefest moment every last man in Shawshank felt free.

John Rawlins says: [part of the prayer group] Lord, we stand before you this evening, to say thank you! And we thank you, father, for your grace, and your many blessings! Now I run off, leaving all my young'uns and my kinfolk, in bondage. So I'm standing here this evening, Heavenly Father, to ask your blessings on all of us. So that if tomorrow is the great getting-up morning, if that tomorrow we have to meet the Judgement Day, O Heavenly Father, we want you to let our folks know that we died facing the enemy! We want 'em to know that we went down standing up! Amongst those that are fighting against our oppression. We want 'em to know, Heavenly Father, that we died for freedom! We ask these blessings in Jesus' name. Amen!

John Rawlins says: That's right, Hines. Ain't no dream. We runaway slaves but we come back fightin' men. Go tell your folks how kingdom come in the year of jubilee!

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: Look, I'd rather Mr. Earle didn't know about me borrowing it...

Lucius Fox says: Mr Wayne, the way I see it, all this stuff is yours anyway.

Lucius Fox says: Nothing like the air superiority.

Lucius Fox says: Bruce Wayne. As I live and breath. What brings you out of Cryo-sleep Mr. Wayne?

William Somerset says: 'The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.' I agree with the second part.

Mitch Bradley says: Would you bury me next to Griffin?

Elinar Gilkyson says: Don't you think you ought to die first?

Mitch Bradley says: You want to know what I dreamed last night?

Elinar Gilkyson says: What?

Mitch Bradley says: I dreamed you weren't such a miserable son of a bitch.

Elinar Gilkyson says: That's not dreaming, it's wishful thinking.

Mitch Bradley says: I was dreamin' about the sea last night.

Elinar Gilkyson says: Didja get wet?

Mitch Bradley says: Walked right in. It felt like falling in love. Smelled like a woman. Tasted like one too.

Elinar Gilkyson says: Yer memory's not that good.

Fox says: Bruce Wayne. As I live and breathe. What brings you out of cryo-sleep, Mr. Wayne?

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: I see you haven't lost your sense of humor...even if you have lost most of my money.

Fox says: Actually, you did that. If you funnel the entire R and D budget into a fusion project that you then mothball, your company is unlikely to thrive.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: What are my options?

Fox says: Well, if you're unwilling to turn on the machine...

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: I can't. I can't, Lucius.

Fox says: Well, then sit tight. Your majority keeps Daggett at bay while we figure out a future for the energy program with Miranda Tate. She has supported the project all the way. She's smart, and quite lovely.

Fox says: We all just want what's best for you, Bruce. Show her the machine.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: I'll think it over.

Fox says: anything else

Fox says: nope why

Sloan says: Welcome... to the Fraternity. This gun you're holding belonged to your father; he could conduct a symphony orchestra with it.

Joe Matheson says: This used to be a gentleman's game.

William Somerset says: This guy's methodical, exacting, and worst of all, patient.

David Mills says: He's a nut-bag! Just because the fucker's got a library card doesn't make him Yoda!

David Mills says: Has he tried to speak or communicate in any way?

Dr. Beardsley says: Even if his brain were not mush, which it is, he chewed off his own tongue long ago.

William Somerset says: Uh... Doc, is there absolutely no chance that he might survive?

Dr. Beardsley says: Detective, he'd die of shock right now if you were to shine a flashlight in his eyes. He's experienced about as much pain and suffering as anyone I've encountered, give or take... and he still has hell to look forward to. Good night.

David Mills says: Yeah, a landlord's dream: a paralyzed tenant with no tongue.

William Somerset says: Who pays the rent on time.

God says: You can't kneel in the middle of the highway and live to tell the tale, son.

Bruce Nolan says: I'm dead?!?

God says: Nah, I'm just messin' with ya.

Bruce Nolan says: You think that's funny?!?

Bruce Nolan says: You think that's funny?

Ellis Boy "Red" Redding says: King me.

Andy Dufresne says: Ah chess.. now theres a game of kings, knights, strategy...

Ellis Boy "Red" Redding says: And a total fucking mystery. I hate it!

Carter Chambers says: I HATE YOUR ROTTEN GUTS!

Carter Chambers says: I hate your rotten guts!
