Acclaimed actor talks about ‘role reversal’ — in Chicago

SHARE Acclaimed actor talks about ‘role reversal’ — in Chicago

While in New York Saturday I sat down with actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, to talk about “12 Years A Slave,” the upcoming film, based on Solomon Northrup’s frightening true story — a powerful movie already stirring tons of Oscar buzz.

When I asked the actor his thoughts about Chicago, he revealed, “actually it was the very first American city I ever visited. When I was about 14, I did a play in your city. We had something of an exchange between my school in London, and the Latin School of Chicago.

“We did a little switch, a bit of a turn-about. We performed ‘Never the Sinner,’ about the Leopold and Loeb murder case, and the Latin students did ‘The Importance of Being Earnest.”

“I loved it!”
