ADA, Okla., April 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Oscar winning actor Lou Gossett Jr. will appear at the Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. (NYSE: PPD) 2011 International Convention on Friday evening, April 8, addressing an estimated 11,000 independent associates from throughout the U.S. and four provinces of Canada.

Gossett's appearance at the annual PPD event is to help promote awareness of the new film, The Lamp , a production which will be used by PPD independent associates for private charitable fund raising events throughout the coming summer -- prior to the film's fall release.

The film, in which Gossett plays a starring role, is based on the book, The Lamp , written by Jim Stovall, president of Tulsa-based Narrative Television Network ( Stovall the co-producer of the film, will also address the PPD assembly, provide a motivational presentation, discuss the film and introduce Lou Gossett. On Saturday morning, April 9, Gossett and Stovall will sign copies of a special PPD produced edition of The Lamp for associates.

In the film, Gossett plays a mysterious messenger (not a genie) who appears from a magic lamp, providing guidance to a married couple who suffer through a series of personal tragedies.  

PPD Founder and Chairman of the Board Harland C. Stonecipher has a cameo role in The Lamp , along with CEO Steve Forbes of Forbes magazine and CEO Paula Marshall of the Bama Companies.

"We're honored to have an Oscar award winning actor like Lou Gossett Jr. appear on the stage of our 2011 International Convention. Through his work as both an actor and humanitarian, Mr. Gossett demonstrates a principle that we of Pre-Paid Legal Services believe in: doing well by doing good," PPD Chairman Stonecipher said.

The PPD International Convention is an annual event organized to offer training and development activities to help associates develop specific sales and recruitment skills and to recognize associate success in business development.
