Biography

The son of acclaimed actor Morgan Freeman, Alfonso Freeman used his imposing presence to great effect in character roles. He took his first onscreen bows in the mid-'90s, gracing the casts of many productions that starred his father, including The Shawshank Redemption (1994), Se7en (1995), Nurse Betty (2000), and The Bucket List (2007). Making light of this, he voiced a lead character, Fred Redding, in the short parody The SharkTank Redemption in 2000 as well as narrating a Robot Chicken spoof of March of the Penguins, for which Morgan Freeman had provided English narration. Alfonso also appeared in such films as Burn (1998) and Lord Help Us (2007), as well as taking on guest roles on such popular TV series as The West Wing, ER, and The Practice. In addition to his onscreen work, Freeman is an accomplished stage actor and gospel singer. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
