American actor of screen and stage, as well as a playwright, director, and producer Laurence Fishburne turned half a century old on July 30, 2011.  Fishburne is best known for his roles as Morpheus in the Matrix saga, and as singer-musician Ike Turner in the Tina Turner biopic "What's Love Got to Do With It". His nickname among friends is "Fish". He does not like being called "Larry" since that is what he was called when he was a child. Here's what Fishburne said about the roles he was offered: "I've played a lot of bad guys, 'cause that was the only work I could get. People saw my face and went 'oooh'."
