“First to Finish, Last to Die” – Ilderim


Ben-Hur arrives in theaters this weekend. It’s an epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother, Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army. Stripped of his title, separated from his family and the woman he loves (Nazanin Boniadi), Judah is forced into slavery. After years at sea, Judah returns to his homeland to seek revenge, but instead, he finds redemption. The movie is based on Lew Wallace’s timeless novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.

Our very own, Louis Love (Luis Lecca) got a chance to participate in round table style interviews with the cast of the film. He even got a hug from Morgan Freeman who did an outstanding job at playing Ilderim in the film!

Read about the hug and what kind of characters Freeman likes playing more below:

Louis Love: I’llurl-1 offer you a hug but,

Morgan Freeman: But, What?

Louis Love: I don’t know if you’ll accept it.

*Morgan Freeman gives Louis Love a hug.

Morgan Freeman: No, No…. I’m not a person who turns down hugs

Louis Love: The film is kind of dark until your character shows up, just like this room was dark until you showed up and gave me a hug, what do you like playing more. A little more serious , a little bit more upbeat characters? Can you talk about that?

Morgan Freeman: I like playing. It doesn’t really matter. Give me a good script, give me good people to work with, and by that I mean, EVERYBODY. And most of the time, that’s the kind of situation that I just find myself in, you know. I’m working with really terrific people and life is good. Its just fun to do. I’m in the business that I have been wanting to be in since I was like 8 years old. You know, its what I want to do. So here I am. What’s life like? Like melon. Just need to be eaten.
