2013 looks to be Morgan Freeman’s year.
The Oscar winning actor received the Cinema Icon award Thursday evening at Cinema Con, and is slated to appear in four films this year, including the recently released Olympus Has Fallen and the upcoming caper film, Now You See Me.
But, if there’s one thing that Freeman is most excited about this year, it’s finally getting the chance to work with Tom Cruise.
Freeman stars alongside Cruise in the sci-fi thriller Oblivion and gushed to HipHollywood at the film’s junket about his longstanding love for Mr. Cruise. “For many years I’ve wanted the opportunity to work with him and then I get this terrific script and get to play this terrific part with him,” revealed Freeman.
Oblivion is in theaters Friday April 19th.
