Nikki Amuka-Bird (Shoot The Messenger, Torchwood, Small Island, The Omen, #1 Ladies Detective Agency) has one of those faces that makes you say, "Haven't I seen her somewhere?" More than likely, you probably have.

A veteran of stage, film, and television on the other side of the pond, Amuka-Bird has made a name for herself by delivering some remarkable supporting performances. Hopefully, she'll soon receive the opportunities that have, in recent years, been afforded to her counterparts, like Idris Elba, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sophie Okonedo, and David Oyelowo.

I'm not exactly sure how big a role she has in Coriolanus-- IMDB lists her role as that of "TV Pundit"-- but these days, any look is a good look for actors hoping to break out from supporting-role status.

With a screenplay written by Gladiator and The Last Samurai screenwriter John Logan, Coriolanus boasts an impressive cast that includes Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler, Vanessa Redgrave, and James Nesbitt.

Based on the William Shakespeare tragedy, The Weinstein Company will release the film in the U.S. on December 2, 2011.
