Anybody else notice this?...Re: Morgan Freeman.

I noticed recently that Morgan Freeman's left hand appears to be paralyzed. I first noticed it in The Dark Knight Returns and then in the movie Red. Now, whenever he comes on the tube I notice that his left hand is often out of camera or is holding something small and not articulating his fingers.

Anybody know what's up with that?

2. Apparently the result of a car accident...

From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgan_Freeman

Car accident

Freeman was injured in an automobile accident near Ruleville, Mississippi, on the night of August 3, 2008. The vehicle in which he was traveling, a 1997 Nissan Maxima, left the highway and flipped over several times. He and a female passenger, Demaris Meyer, were rescued from the vehicle using the "Jaws of Life". Freeman was taken via medical helicopter to The Regional Medical Center (The Med) hospital in Memphis. Police ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash. Freeman was coherent following the crash, as he joked to a photographer about taking his picture at the scene. His left shoulder, arm and elbow were broken in the crash and he had surgery on August 5, 2008. Doctors operated for four hours to repair nerve damage in his shoulder and arm. On CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight he stated that he is left handed but cannot move the fingers of his left hand. He wears a compression glove to protect against blood pooling due to non-movement. His publicist announced he was expected to make a full recovery. Meyer, his passenger, sued him for negligence, claiming that he was drinking the night of the accident. Subsequently, the suit was settled.

3. Yeah. I just read the same thing...

Well... mystery solved. We may now return to our normally boring lives.

4. I saw him on Craig Ferguson

I noticed that as well and Googled it as the person above did. Personally like Freeman, but I do question whether he was drinking and driving.
