He's one goofy looking guy, but he's good on 12 years of slaves

Its impressive to see a few men of Nigerian origin achieve so much, on the international front.

He's so handsome and such a talented actor. I saw him in 2012 and realized he was also the translator in Amistad. He just strikes me so much. I have a crush on him...just like high school all over again. Maybe I should find a poster of him to put on my bedroom wall. :")
