Character Bio: The always-good Freeman turns in another quietly stellar performance as Eddie “Scraps” Dupris, the live-in manager of the Hit Pit gym. A former boxer who believes a fighter only has so many fights in them, Scraps knows a good thing when he sees it. As soon as Maggie (Hilary Swank) steps into the gym, looking for a trainer, Scraps can smell the raw talent. He knows the only one who can properly train Maggie is his boss, Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood). The tough part is trying to convince the hardened Dunn to do it, but Scraps has his ways.
