Morgan Freeman is cult actor; he is beyond comparison and is in a class of his own. Any role he plays becomes a benchmark and more often than not he is cast in the mold of God or a character and narrator beyond reproach. So obviously it becomes a hug thing if you meet him in a club. And after all, who wouldn’t like a night on the tiles that is narrated by Morgan Freeman? There have been countless stories about people claiming that they’ve met celebrities in common public places but this beats all of them and is one of the funniest ever. A group of party goers in Magaluf actually thought that Morgan Freeman was among them and they got all excited about it. However, it turned out to be some other man who was on a holiday and had an uncanny resemblance to Morgan Freeman. A Vancouver restaurant offered free food to Liam Neeson, and he actually showed up to claim the offer!
Louis Dorsett tweeted a picture and wrote, “My uncle (Norman) went to Magaluf for a stag weekend and everyone thought he was Morgan Freeman.” In fact, the resemblance between Norman and Morgan Freeman was so pronounced that even the local clubs got confused and got in on the act by announcing the fact that they had Morgan Freeman in their bar! Norman, the lookalike did not reveal the truth to the people and was happily clicking pictures with them. People went back home thinking they had clicked selfies with the Oscar-winning star but Norman’s nephew Louis Dorsett soon took to Twitter and burst everyone’s bubble with the truth.

The resemblance is so uncanny that we don’t blame the people and the pubs to actually think that Morgan Freeman was among their midst. We wonder how he was never mobbed by the actor’s fans before. Maybe he should start standing in for Morgan Freeman at social dos.
