good morning! i never thought i’d be posting the cover of AARP‘s magazine – which is the bi-monthly publication of the ‘american association of retired people’ – but they’ve got one of my favorite actors morgan freeman on their new nov/dec cover – plus i realized eventually we’ll all have subscriptions to the magazine along with AARP member cards (senior discounts!) i can’t think of one movie i didn’t like that starred mr. freeman and next month he has a new film coming out called gone baby, gone which was directed by ben affleck and also stars mr. affleck’s brother casey (the film is based on a book by dennis lehane who also wrote mystic river) i’ve embedded the trailer below – it looks like a good tight mystery & suspense film! anyways i’m thrilled today is friday – i can’t wait to sleep late tomorrow! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!
