First Look: Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela in 'Invictus'


A capture of Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela on the set of Clint Eastwood-directed movie about the life of the then-South African President during the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

An image of Morgan Freeman in costume for his upcoming feature film "Invictus" has been found via In Contention. The photo, displaying the 72-year-old actor as freedom fighter Nelson Mandela for the first time, is said to be snapped from the set of the Clint Eastwood-directed drama.

Prior to the outing of this Freeman's photo, a capture of his co-star, Matt Damon, has also been shared. In the picture, the younger actor can be seen portraying Francois Pienaar, a rugby star and captain of the South African Springboks national rugby union team who led the team to victory in the 1995 Rugby Union World Cup.

"Invictus", previously known as "The Human Factor", is a movie based on John Carlin's book, "Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Changed a Nation". It chronicles Nelson Mandela's life during the 1995 Rugby World Cup which he used as a mean to bring his people together after the fall of apartheid. The film is due to be released on December 11.
