You're absolutely right, but it's the way IMDb works. Each character only has one character page on IMDb, even if it is played by different actors. When you enter a character as an option in a poll, only the most important person playing it will come out. In this case it's Nelson Mandela himself, not Morgan Freeman. Therefore I could not use it in the poll.

leavey-2,

You can still add Nelson Mandela to your poll.

If you add this text for the choice:
Played by [link=nm0000151]
This text will be displayed:
Played by Morgan Freeman

... and this image (the one for Morgan Freeman's main page) will be displayed:
Morgan Freeman Picture

If you decide to add Nelson Mandela to your list (http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069686419/), please ask for a re-push.

Morgan Freeman made so many movies in his career that we didn't include tv-series. I was surprised to see that he featured in 780 (!) episodes! I didn't know that. Thanks for your feedback.

Interesting to know is that he played the same character (Dr. Alex Cross) in 2 different movies: Kiss the Girls (1997) and Along Came a Spider (2001)

My favorite has always been when he played the bad guy in Nurse Betty.  He makes a great villain, and I'd like to see him do more like that.
