I dunno. I think Chiwetel Ejiofor, who played the Operative in Serenity would be better suited. T'Challa is a cultured genius as much as he is a fighter, after all.

I am the person who has never seen Serenity, so it would be stupid for me to say anything about Chiwetel Ejiofo. I will just say that an actor should be able to play any character. In Universal Soldier 3, he was very effective as the voice of the sentient computer.

Now, when he got into his prefab body, that performance turned into . . . . well, he made JC Van Damme and Goldberg both look like actors.

That was the director's fault.

I'm reminded of Tyrese Gibson being cast as Luke Cage. He said, "I'll probably be benching 400 by then."
It makes me weep when these actors have NO idea about any of it.

Folks, I WARM UP with more than 400 lbs. That's not a lot for a guy who is 200 lbs. Luke Cage is HUGE. I don't look like anything. Cage should be played by someone who could compete as a bodybuilder. Flex Wheeler (while he was still on steroids and before he turned pro and lost what had made other pros gape), Ronnie Coleman, Dexter Jackson, that kind of build.

I'm talking about Luke Cage here, not T'Challah.
