Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd set to (finally!) reunite in 'Dolphin Tale'

kiss-the-girlsImage Credit: Everett CollectionI know they’ve only been in two movies together (1997’s Kiss the Girls and 2002′ High Crimes), but for some irrational reason, I think of Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd as the peanut butter and raspberry jam of cinematic pairings: How can one possibly exist without the other? So needless to say, I was elated to read in The Hollywood Reporter this morning that Freeman and Judd are mulling a reunion (alongside Harry Connick Jr.) in Dolphin Tale, a story about the friendship between a boy and a brave dolphin whose use of a prosthetic fin touches people across the planet. Judd has her eye on the role of the boy’s mother, Freeman the dolphin’s doctor, but I’m hoping a script doctor will set things straight by rewriting their roles as “plucky young police officer” and “grizzled-but-wise detective (with one week left on the job).” Got better ideas for their characters? Begin the brainstorming sesh in the comments below!

    I agree, I love them together! I would also be glad to see Ashley in another film. I really love her as an actress. Double Jeopardy is one of those movies I will watch anytime it’s on.

  • Meh

    She can play his step-granddaughter for whom he leaves his wife.

    • harry

      are you sure about that?

      • Meh

        Well, I guess she IS a little old for that role.

  • I’d suggest a role in which Morgan Freeman’s character has an affair with his granddaughter, but he may find the role not challenging enough, as he wouldn’t have to act.

  • Lorie

    Woo hoo! I, too, think they make an awesome team.

  • Brett

    Clearly, she has no career without him, while he is part of a franchise making mega-millions without her (the current “Batman” films).

    This would be a pan-species RomCom?

  • Stan

    Ashley Judd as the immature older man with trust issues, and Morgan Freeman as the wise-beyond-her-years schoolgirl who teaches him about life and love. Or thereabouts.

    Oh I agree – these two belong together! I kept hoping for a little on screen romantic action between them on Kiss the Girls. As long as her part includes the descriptive “plucky” and his includes “grizzled”, I’m in!

  • PrettyPaula

    I love both of them

  • Crystal

    Totally agree – aren’t they friends IRL too? It’s been too long!

  • FLD

    Did anyone else’s jaw drop when they read the description of the movie’s plot?
