Morgan Freeman managed to stop by the Ole Miss game on Tuesday night, making an already awesome clash with Kentucky an unforgettable one. 

I understand that Tuesday night featured a great deal of highlights and antics from budding star Marshall Henderson. 

While Henderson was off acting a fool, one of the best in Hollywood was in the arena to play it far more cool with fans.

Thanks to Busted Coverage, we have a few images from the Shawshank Redemption star taking it easy while he caught what would be an eventual loss by Ole Miss to Kentucky, 87-74. 

Here is Freeman grabbing a handful of the Ole Miss cheer squad. It's important to note playing Lucius Fox in the Batman trilogy will get you everywhere in life. 

Here he is with a newfound BFF

And here is a tweet from Mitt Romney's former personal aide catching sight of Freeman who, as Busted Coverage noted, is wearing just one white glove. 

What worked for Michael Jackson must be good for the man who can pretty much narrate an episode of Honey Boo Boo and guarantee it an Emmy. 

It seems like Freeman had a great time at the game, but something was missing. 

Perhaps I am just being greedy in thinking the good people at Ole Miss could have stuck a microphone in his face and kindly asked him to color commentate a half. 

What would happen next would be voice-over gold. 

It would have ruined anything we might have heard after, so perhaps it's a good thing he merely watched the game and cuddled with cheerleaders.
