Sgt. Maj. John Rawlins injured
Actor Morgan Freeman who played Sgt. Maj. John "Gravedigger" Rawlins in the film Glory has been injured in a car accident:
A rubber-necker tried to take his picture while being removed from the scene. Freeman joked and said, "No freebies, no freebies."
A great actor, I had the opportunity to see him at work on the set of Glory while I was working there as an extra. He got stepped on several times by reenactors (not me) while diving for cover in the sand dunes during the assault on Fort Wagner, but he never lost his cool... although you could see in his face he was none to happy about it!
