Chiwetel Ejiofor Eyed to Play Villain in James Bond



Chiwetel Ejiofor - April 2014 - BellaNaija 01

His name is Ejiofor, Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The British-Nigerian actor is rumoured to be a top choice to play the villain in the next James Bond movie.

The Academy award nominated actor for “12 Years a Slave” hasn’t been made an offer yet, but he is a front-runner for the job, Variety reports

Javier Bardem was the last villain the action franchise and the production company is hoping that Ejiofor will be the next bad guy.

Daniel Craig will return as James Bond and star alongside Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris.

P.S Chiwetel will be in Nigeria, for Half of a Yellow Sun press conference, is there any question you’ll like us to ask him?

    Yes, please ask him to settle what seems to be an ongoing debate among BN commentators as to how he defines himself. Is he Nigerian, British, Igbo ???? I view him as an Igbo.

    Success (Chiwetel) has so many fathers, failure (Abdulmutallab) is an orphan that fell from the sky.

    Dont like the fact that he allowed his pale unknown white girldriend to take his shine during the awards season. Hes a good actor that has worked hard, when he was nominated , common sense did not tell him thats is not the time to show off his extremley pale girlfriend, i knew he will not win oscar with the stupid move. She stole the limelight off him and took his shine. She was relatively unknown and become an instant hit with his careless move. Blackman will always be blackman. A typical whiteman calculates his moves and thinks what will benefit him first. Am angry at him for not using his sense. Rubbish.

      All this stupidity on one post. Nne, abeg don’t choke us with your silliness, If you have to be dumb at least spread it evenly across other posts and read properly before running your fingers.

      At least it is her skin colour that is pale, what about your heart and brain? Silly racist!

    The guy said he is British. Give him a break and let it be. Changes nothing anyway.
