Hey, I missed his birthday. Happy 34th a bit late to British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, who was absolute fucking brilliance personified in two roles I loved: as the Operative in Serenity and as the scary revolutionary dude in the absolutely devastating Children of Men.
I’m given to understand he’s considered hot, also.
IMDB informs me his name is pronounced “chew-it-tell edge-oh-for.” Ejiofor joins Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje on the list of Londoners of Nigerian parentage who are absolutely fucking brilliant actors and have names I cannot properly pronounce on the first try.
