Freeman is far and away the most overrated actor in this tournament.

I really like Morgan Freeman, but I can't remember the last time he didn't play Morgan Freeman. He's like a more eloquent Jason Statham. You could lift him out of just about any role he has had recently and just drop him in another role without much difference. Some of the people in the tournament, such as Oldman and Bale (a matchup I decide to sit out), completely get lost in most of their roles.

Exactly, he's done hardly any actual 'acting' since maybe the 80's.

Literally ANYONE could've done what he did in Seven, The Dark Knight movies, Million Dollar Baby, etc...

He was a servicable at best villain in Dreamcatcher. The closest he came to acting there was raising his voice.

He basically just plays the narrator in everything, even when he's not supposed to be narrating. He reads almost every line with the same expression in the same tone.

He barely qualifies as an actor. He's paid to be Morgan Freeman. He's one of the most non-charismatic actors around that's demonstrated a remarkable lack of range for someone considered a legend.

Yay, DDL lost. Not that I have anything against him, but I didn't want it to be like the Oscars where everyone just assumes he's automatically going to win.
