BEST: Morgan Freeman, bringing the world together If there's anyone who can stop us from channel-surfing during commercial breaks during the Olympics, it's Morgan Freeman. (He sold us on a loom of fate in " Wanted" -- there's little he can't do.) So even if he's hawking Visa, we still sit up and pay attention when that magnanimous voice tells us: "There are 6 billion of us. We all come from unique places with unique ways of looking at the world. We don't always agree. But for a few shining weeks we set it all aside. We come together to stand and cheer and celebrate as one. We forget all the things that make us different and remember all the things that make us the same."
