Did you know Bill Russell played God.  Bill also played Andy’s friend at Shawshank and along with Clint Eastwood makes one of the best duos in cinema history.

Actually the Celtic great with more rings than fingers that are rarely used to sign autographs has never done any of those but to anchor George Stephanopoulos they sure look a like.   During this morning’s telecast of the President’s inaugural address, poor George was put on the spot and accidently said “Morgan Freeman…I think” when the camera focused on Bill Russell.
