A couple months ago, my friend Adebayo Bolaji told me that he had got a acting role in the new James Bond film, Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes. Unfortunately, he was not the first black bond (although, I do not give up on when the day will come), he is playing one of the henchmen of Silva (the vilian), played by Javier Bardem.
Who is Adebayo, I hear you say? Adebayo Bolaji has someone who I have always admired and been a big inspiration of mine. He is an insanely good actor. I remember past times when he would perform off the top of his head, and I be thinking ’Dude, how did you do that?’ I remember seeing his first play, Ugly Butterflies, by his theatre company, Ex Nihilo, and being blown away. It was probably one of first theatre experiences where I thought and felt, ‘Yes, this is what theatre is. This is what theatre is.’ He is one of the few people I know who overflows with creativity, in every sense. He’s awesome!
But I think, you should just check out how awesome he is for yourself. His long overdue website has debuted: http://www.officialade.com/index.html
