LOL! Watch David Oyelowo Do a Hilarious Oprah Winfrey Impression



Ellen DeGeneresDavid Oyelowo as well as Oprah Winfrey and Carmen Ejogo were recently on the Ellen DeGeneres show and they definitely had a fun time.

The 38-year-old British actor was on hand with his co-stars to promote Selma and even did an amazing impersonation of Oprah.

Watch the video below!

    can we just take a moment to look at carmen ejogo. my gawd!!! she is gorgeous. can u believe she’s married and has 2 kids. look at those long legs and those cheekbones. #nohetero

    david oyelowo is so likable but he isn’t going to win the oscar. he will get nominated but he will lose to eddie redmayne or benedict cumberbatch. he wasn’t even nominated for a Bafta and he’s british.

    nigerians abroad are doing big things. pls dont make mistake and relocate back to nigeria. u will regret it.

    Awww! He is soo cool and Carmen… that answer was epic. Its so typical of these people assuming cos you are Nigerian or African that you must know each other.

    Just for this video, I shall make effort to watch Selma.

    You know once the big “O” becomes a fan of you, then you’re going to blow up in a major way and life as you knew it before will never be the same again 😀

    David was incredible in Selma, such a compelling movie I must say, and this would be like with chiwetel last year not winning the oscar, but already he’s mainstream now, that’s worth commending.

    One word……………………. CARMENNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dang!! she’s gorgeous!! fell head over heels in love with her after i saw “Sparkle” she’s such a looker!

    David Oyelowo is going to get so much more bigger! He has an amazing presence and aura and he is a fantastic actor. This is his second big project with Oprah, he was also in “The Butler”

    Well done guys! So proud of you both.

      Ehen!!! Thank you for reminding me of where I’ve seen her before… was staring at the screen and racking my brain with the question. You’re right, she was incredible in “Sparkle” (of which, I only saw that movie by chance on a flight or I’d have missed it completely – seemed like it didn’t get a great deal of buzz) and I didn’t even know she was British Nigerian. Think I’ve also seen her in something else, though…

      David really comes across as so comfortable and confident in his talent, I love how he handles interviews. And I shall now set my sights on catching Selma when it comes into town.

      PS: Dear Cineworld Aberdeen, let it not be like that time in 2009 that we had make specials call of discontent before y’all finally screened the movie “Precious”. You have been warned.
