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.

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.
