David Oyelowo has gone from playing a nice-guy boyfriend in Ava DuVernay‘s Middle of Nowhere (’12) to the son of Forest Whitaker in Lee Daniels‘ The Butler (’13) to Martin Luther King in DuVernay’s Selma (’14) to a chess coach in Queen of Katwe (’16) to Seretse Khama, the president of Botswana, in A United Kingdom (’16) to…an excitable chump running from the Mexican cartel in Nash Edgerton‘s Gringo (Amazon, 3.9).
I don’t think so. Not for me. If for no other reason than not relating to protagonists who let go with falsetto screams when they’re scared. Feels paycheck-y.
