    I didn't like his name seriously and the Iraq and Afghanistan thing in the movie, but I did play him the starring of the black panther in a heartbeat. Better looks and puffed than the other dude.

    I think he is the new Will Smith right now, but what I really want him to be is the new Denzel, and he is ready for that years ago, only hold back by his youth look, every MBJ movie I watched, his character always stands out and never the same, that's a real actor not a teen model.
