The Guardian interviews Freeman about rumors that he is just playing his self in every project he has done.
Well, no I’m not. If you mean I look a bit like him and I sound a bit like him yeah, that’s because I’m playing him and it didn’t say ‘He’s Somalian’ on the script, otherwise I would have tried an accent. If the script says, ‘Guy in his 30s, my generation, lives in England’, what am I going to do? Start acting like I’m half-lizard? There’s no point, because no one wants to see it.
