America-born Gbenga Akinnagbe made a name for himself appearing as Chris Partlow in HBO’s The Wire and has since appeared in different movies such as in the Mel Gibson thriller Edge Of Darkness, The Savages, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 and some other series. The actor will be playing a lead character the next time he’s on the big screen as work on Jono Oliver’s 2013 flick titled Home has been completed.
Home is the story of a man named Jack, suffering from mental illness, whose goal is to move out of the group home where he resides and into a home of his own. By doing so he hopes to rebuild his life, reconnect with his estranged son, and put himself back on a path to “normalcy.”
Jono Oliver who directs the movie has worked as an assistant director on a number of movies such as The Great Debaters, Notorious, Guess Who, Barbershop 2, John Tucker Must Die, Snake Eyes, Last Action Hero, and Soul Food and now it seems he’s ready to work on his own flick so let’s see how that one turns out when it gets released in 2013.
