Speedy Recovery to Morgan Freeman

FanBoyWonder would like to extend our best wishes and a speedy recovery to Oscar ® winning actor Morgan Freeman—best known to fanboys and girls as Lucius Fox, Batman’s gadget guy in Batman Begins and the now-playing The Dark Knight.

Mr. Freeman was seriously injured and reported hospitalized in serious condition in a Tennessee hospital following an automobile accident yesterday.

Freeman, 71, "has a broken arm, broken elbow and minor shoulder damage, but is in good spirits," according to a statement from Donna Lee, Freeman's publicist as reported by the Associated Press.

Below is Lee’s statement in full regarding Mr. Freeman’s condition:

MEMPHIS, Tenn.-- The following is a statement by Donna Lee - Spokesperson/Publicist for Morgan Freeman:

Regarding Morgan's injuries - "Morgan has a broken arm, elbow and has minor shoulder damage but was in good spirits when I spoke with him a short time ago at the Elvis Presley Memorial Trauma Center at The MED, a Level 1 Trauma Center at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis.

He is having a little bit of surgery this afternoon or tomorrow to help correct the damage. He says he'll be OK and is looking forward to a full recovery

Folks are welcome to send well wishes - no flowers or gifts - to:
PO Box 16548, Encino, CA 91416 in care of Morgan Freeman
Or they can blog him at: http://www.planitnow.org/morgan/
He and we thank everyone who has sent them for the good wishes and prayers.

Mr. Freeman has a long, distinguished body of work but to FanBoyWonder he’ll always be The Easy Reader from the Electric Company in the ‘70s and of course, Ellis Boyd "Red" Redding, wise prison lifer from The Shawshank Redemption.

Godspeed Red and get well soon!
