The announcement that she'd been cast in quite a meaty role in Steve McQueen's Twelve Years A Slave naturally led some to wonder about her past work, given that, as I noted in that post, looking over her IMDB page, the Kenyan actress has primarily crew credits on a few projects, but little in the acting department. Although on her Twitter page, she lists herself as an actor first, a graduate of Yale School of Drama.

Looks like this has been confirmed to be Cuba Gooding Jr.'s next project; the titled we previously had (based on what my source told me) was Something Whispered (although I can't say if that's what it will eventually be called).

A film that's on my to-see list, if it ever makes it to NYC - Chocó, set in Colombia, which centers on the struggles of a 27-year-old mother of 2 (the titular Chocó), working a poorly-paid job in a gold mine, living in a tiny wooden hut, who's married to a reckless and abusive man named Everlides, a marimba player who gambles away their life savings.
