In the sweet new slice-of-life drama "Feast of Love," Morgan Freeman returns to a type of role that is now familiar. He plays a sage observer of human nature and a commentator on our foibles and follies in all things romantic. Of course, Freeman often portrays characters with a near-mystic omniscience. With his innately calming manner and authoritative delivery, he has played both the president and God.   MORGAN FREEMAN - In the slice-of-life drama 'Feast ... [full story]

It wasn't much by Hollywood standards, but it paid better than being a waiter for the day at a local hamburger emporium.   BRET HARRISON - Bret Harrison is the star of 'Reaper,' a one-hour comedy series revolving around a 22-year-old slacker named Sam Oliver. ...
