        @Agent-Cooper I also hate fake african accents, so kinda wish they'd actually get an african to play him. But I guess you need someone famous

          @Agent-Cooper yeah I know this. I just find denzel a far better actor, especially for an important role as Mendela. And Freeman played Mendela already. But hey maybe Idris will surprise me. I was purely going off the poster.

            @phatalphd Idris Elba is a great actor and I'm sure he will do the role justice. Not every black man has to be played by either Denzel Washinton, Morgan Freeman or Will Smith..

              Seems like this shouldve been Denzel. Idris just looks weird.
