Last Vegas: Billy (Academy Award®-winner Michael Douglas), Paddy (Academy Award®-winner Robert De Niro), Archie (Academy Award®-winner Morgan Freeman) and Sam (Academy Award®-winner Kevin Kline) have been best friends since childhood.

The Rat Pack may have once played the Sands and Cirque du Soleil may now rule the Strip, but it’s these four who are taking over Vegas.

When all else fails, the only thing left to do is… stalk Morgan Freeman?
Canadian college student Ian MacDougall seems to think so.
In April of 2012, MacDougall discovered that he lost a year’s worth of editing on his project for a film class at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia because of a hard drive crash. Even worse, this happened a week before the project was set to screen. In a panic, MacDougall decided to instead go with a rejected project once thought up by friend MacKenzie Warner: to make a documentary about trying to get Morgan Freeman to narrate their documentary, which would be about… trying to get Morgan Freeman to narrate their documentary, of course.

Tonight, Hollywood will honor the best in the business at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards. One of film’s most esteemed actors, Morgan Freeman, is receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.
At 74 years old, Freeman still believes he has a lot left to do.
In an interview with USA Today, Freeman says, “I’m getting a lot of end-of-the-career awards, that lifetime achievement stuff. I’m beginning to feel like I’m being told, ‘OK, time to hang up your cleats and sit down.’ Once you start getting them, it’s like, ‘What do you—what?! What is this lifetime achievement? Have I done it already? There’s no more achieving for you?’ You just ask, you know. You have to get up when they give these things to you and say, ‘Now, wait a minute; I don’t consider myself done yet.’”
In fact, Freeman is busier than ever. His career dates back to the 70s and includes star-making performances in Shawshank Redemption, Driving Miss Daisy, and his brave undertaking of the role of God in Bruce Almighty and Evan Almighty. He’s been nominated for four Academy Awards, and won best supporting actor in 2004 for Million Dollar Baby. His next project is The Dark Knight Rises, the much-anticipated third and last film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman series. Read more
Forbes Magazine always likes to put together all kinds of “most successful” lists. Of course, Forbes’ latest list, which is supposed to list the Hardest Working Actors in Show Business, has interesting criteria. “To come up with our list we looked at all movies that earned more than $20 million since 2007″ and picked the actors who have appeared in the most $20 million+ grossing films since (not counting animated films).
Some of the choices are the usual suspects, but there are also some surprises.
