The current installment of the Batman franchise, 'The Dark Knight' certainly isn't cursed at the box office but in the three weeks since its record shattering opening, two of its stars have been touched by misfortune. Batman himself, Christian Bale, had the media buzzin' with the he said/she said account of his mother and sister claimin that he dusted them up a bit. Truth be told, if all three of them had been southsiders Christian probably would have missed the European premiere as his mother and sister would have beat him within an inch of his life. He probably would have been the one callin' the Po Po. But ol Ty doesn't mean to make (much) light of that potentially serious situation, at least until the facts come out.
Now we get news that the CEO of Wayne Enterprises, Lucius Fox (I must have typed 'Luscious' five times here before I finally got it right, y'all...Luscious Fox...ha!) or, as he's better known, Morgan Freeman has been involved in a serious car accident. Add that to Heath Ledger's accidental overdose and that's enough to make a brother go hmmmmm.....
Any time there's a one car accident with a female passenger in the car three potential scenarios come to mind (at least mine, y'all). 1) Ol boy fell asleep. Since the accident occurred shortly before midnight and Mor-Free is 71 now this is a plausibility. 2) Drinking and driving. Since the accident occurred shortly before midnight and Mor-Free is a grown a$$ man driving along the sparsely populated roads of Tallahatchie County, Mississippi this is also a plausibility. 3) Distracting extracurricular (sometimes known as 'noddin''in southside circles...) occurring between Mor-Free and his female passenger while the vehicle was in motion. Since the accident occurred shortly before midnight along the sparsely populated roads of Tallahatchie County, Mississippi this is also a plausibility. But since the car flipped several times and both occupants were found wearin their seatbelts this claim seems fall under the category of 'irresponsible fake journalism'.
The good news is that Mor-Free (and his passenger) is expected to make a full recovery. So if any of y'all happen to be driving by the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, TN, stop in and tell that smooth hipster Easy Reader that Ty said to 'Get Well Soon'. Meanwhile, it seems that 'The Dark Knight' may move onto the fabled cursed movie list along with other such notables as 'Poltergeist', 'The Twilight Zone', 'The Crow' and old school 'A Rebel without a Cause'.
