ACADEMY Award winner Morgan Freeman is in the country to promote the movie Invictus.
In the film, Freeman plays the lead role of former president Nelson Mandela.

The local cast in the film includes Tony Kgoroge, Patrick Mofokeng, Matt Stern, Leleti Khumalo and Marguerite Wheatley as Pienaar's wife. Freeman will be attending the local premiere events for the motion picture on Friday.
