According to news reports, Terrence Howard has signed up to portray Nelson Mandela in the biopic of his controversial wife Winnie Madikizela Mandela, who will be portrayed  by Jennifer Hudson. Jay Hud is already locked in to play the lead role of Winnie.

It’s all based on Marie du Preez Bezdrob’s book Winnie Mandela: A Life, and Darrell James Roodt will kick off filming at the end of the month.

Producers have also announced that in the sequel, the role of Nelson Mandela will be played by Don Cheadle*.

* To be finalized

So what do you think of Terrence Howard playing Nelson Mandela? Shouldn’t a South African actor at least play Nelson Mandela in this biopic? I mean Morgan Freeman just played Nelson Mandela in Invictus?

What Do You Think?….


Holla back & let us know your thoughts….

    We were just debating this with my Husband he thinks If its an African story let Africans play the parts I say if you the Africans wait for others to tell

    Don’t know what to make of this! All I know is that its clear that this has more to do with Selling rather than the Telling. When producers are soliciting funds for their big budget projects, a lot of “Hollywood Apeal” plays into whether or not they attract the right Big Kahunas. I think at some point Madiba himself should be able to say “Haikona”, let me pick whom I think must portray me…….Just a thought y’all.
