I love, love, love to see the world wake up and embrace & respect someone's talent. LOVE it!
Case in point: Chiwetel Ejiofor. A British-Nigerian actor known in America for his roles in Amistad, Inside Man and American Gangster. Chiwetel started out as a theater actor and has since, balanced stage productions with film and television commitments.
His latest role as Solomon Northup in 12 Years a Slave is....brilliant, to say the least. His talent is so dope that there are scenes where he doesn't even speak and he KILLS it. Just amazing.
The buzz has already started about an Oscar nomination for Chiwetel. Shame on Hollywood if they don't honor him! He deserves it and then some.
In the meantime, learn to pronounce his name correctly. You'll be talking about him for a long time. Chiwetel is pronounced Choo-EH-tell. Ejiofor is pronounced Edge-ee-OH-for. Got it?
