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, Seven, Nurse Betty, and The Bucket List. Making light of this, he voiced a lead character, Fred Redding, in the short parody The SharkTank Redemption. Alfonso also appeared in such films as Burn and Lord Help Us, 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. Freeman appeared again, in a parody of the Shawshank Redemption during Robot Chicken series 4, in which he recounts the story as if it were set in the Batman universe of Arkham Jail.
