Chiwetel Ejiofor & Thandie Newton at 2012 premiere
British-based actors Chiwetel Ejiofor and Thandie Newton attended the Los Angeles premiere of their new film, 2012 earlier this month. Chiwetel (a two-time Golden Globes nominee) portrays Adrian Helmsley and Thandie (a BAFTA Award winner) acts as Laura Wilson in the epic thriller about the heroic survivors who endured the world coming to an end in 2012. The Roland Emmerich-directed film opened at the number one spot in the box office and went on to earn $225 million worldwide and $65 million domestically! (Hmm..I have yet to see this film as the plot about the apocalypse seems sort of played out in Hollywood. I did however saw This Is It but that’s for another blog post.) Maybe these two should appear in Half Of A Yellow Sun?? JUST A THOUGHT!)
Empire magazine interview Chiwetel and Thandie who both talked about where and what they hope they’ll be doing by 2012. The publication called Chiwetel – Britain’s best kept secret! <-Cosign that sentiment! Thandie showed off a bit of her funny side as she imitated her 2012 co-star Danny Glover (pictured with Chiwetel in the above photo collage).
Next up for the Zimbabwean-British actress Thandie are two films, Huge and Vanishing On 7th Street. 2010 would be Chiwetel’s year to shine as he has five films -plus a co-starring role alongside Angelina Jolie- due out according to his IMDB page.
