Chiwetel Ejiofor needs to be honored for his vast acting skills, from Kinky Boots to 12 Years A Slave, as well as his social consciousness and good-looking-ness (I know that’s not a word). But I have to say that this MOC Monday was spawned from my own embarrassment, which you can follow on Twitter. To keep it short, I know the difference between David Oyelowo and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Anyways, as a way to make lemonade out of embarrassing lemons, I thought I’d take some time out to honor Chiwetel Ejiofor, since he hasn’t gotten many shout-outs on my site before. Ejiofor is a fantastic actor that I don’t think I’ve seen enough of in my movie-viewing experience. However, we will probably see a lot more of Ejiofor in the states, since he’s rumored to be a part of Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie, and once Disney/Marvel gets their hooks in an actor, you can expect to see that actor over and over again. Steady paychecks are always nice. Even still, I’m going to do my best to see Ejiofor’s performances in Dancing on the Edge and Half of a Yellow Sun.
What do you love about Chiwetel Ejiofor? And have you made an embarrassing move on Twitter and how have you learned to laugh at yourself or learn from your mistakes? Talk about it in the comments section and keep the conversation going on Facebook and Twitter!
