Over the weekend it was announced that two-time Academy Award nominated actor Djimon Hounsou will be the voice of the Black Panther in the upcoming series based on the popular superhero.
Hounsou, whose career started with guest roles on 90210, ER, Alias and Stargate, really got mainstream recognition when he was nominated for a Golden Globe award for his role in Amistad in 1997. After another great role in Gladiator in 2000, Hounsou was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2004 for his role in In America. Two years later, he received another nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Blood Diamond.
Djimon Hounsou is a great choice for the voice of Black Panther and will bring much more credibility to the already highly anticipated series.
