You've seen British actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje in many TV and films roles such as Lost, The Bourne Identity and G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra though no one, except him, really knows how to pronounce his name.

But did you know that he's also a screenwriter? This month there's going to be a public table reading of his screenplay Farming, on Friday April 27th at the Sundance London Film Festival.

The script, which he developed at the Sundance Screenwriting Lab, is based on his own upbringing in London, or as he calls it, the story of "a young African boy's search for love and belonging within a brutal skinhead subculture".  

Tickets are free and available at the website for Sundance London HERE

But in addition, there's a search for Nigerians in London to particpate in the reading of Farming.  They're looking for "women & men - Teenagers - Middle Aged and aged 13 - 30, preferably with acting experience"

If you're interested, contact Hubbard Casting HERE

    Many comments because he said he didn't know how to pronounce his name. But he didn't say that nobody would have commented on this. Or said good things about the actor. I mean this is a blog site. But a good one nonetheless.

    I am not Yoruba but I know how to pronounce it! I guess some of us are expecting journalism and dare I suggest but a hint of 'professional' in the writing. Wishful thinking.....

  • WOW HOW? | April 15, 2012 1:48 PM

    @ The WOW POW ass sniffer. Yo fake-ass-brown-nose-jock-swinging-ass has too much shit on your funky lips to call someone a bitchass. Look around you and tell us what you see? I'll tell you. It's a pit of punk-ass-ness. You don't even have the courage to post under your name, yet you have the nerve to call someone an imposter! GET THE FUK OUT OF HERE TINKER BELL.

  • Wow | April 15, 2012 1:10 PM

    Still with this stupidity? Tell me this is an imposter and not an actual employee insulting the site and running through the comments like a bitchassed chickenhead. With all the time spent stalking the comments section, this fool could've just learned the pronunciation or written another article!

  • Sergio | April 15, 2012 9:05 AM

    You're not going to find that here. Read the N.Y. Times for that

  • BluTopaz | April 14, 2012 1:28 PMReply

    Well i know how to pronounce Adabisi (ducking Nigerian rocks)

  • Melissa | April 14, 2012 6:36 PM

    Doesn't seem like it's about being able to pronounce his name (I'm not sure myself), it's the rudeness/willful ignorance. Like just because the writer can't, no one else does/it's not worth knowing. Happy for him, too. Haven't seen much of him since Lost.

  • JMac | April 14, 2012 1:41 PM

    lol. I feel like if I admit I probably don't know how to pronounce his real name correctly someone will threaten to take my black card away again. Anyway, good for him on his script. Sounds interesting.

    We hope that our favorite Sundance Film Festival After Dark stars Jen Hardman & JR Holbrook will be convering Sundance London 2012. They make every event more exciting and electric.

    Touchy touchy people. Can't you take a joke? People mispronouce my name all the time, but don't get upset

  • Sergio | April 14, 2012 2:18 PM

    Oh well...whachagonnado

  • CareyCarey | April 14, 2012 1:51 PM

    LMAO @ "Whachagonnado". Sergio you a mess, but I like that in you. Keep the self appointed spell checkers and English majors scrambling for something to cry about. Btw, one more time... what exactly is the correct way to say his name? *snicker*

  • Sergio | April 14, 2012 12:35 PM

    OH NO PLEASE! DON'T DO THAT! What shall I do? Where will I go?

  • Akimbo | April 14, 2012 12:30 PM

    Dismiss.

  • Sergio | April 14, 2012 11:56 AM

    Oh believe me I'm gonna keep it until I'm dead and buried. Whachagonnado?

  • Akimbo | April 14, 2012 11:49 AM

    Just ignorant, that's all. But let a white person snidely comment that they don't know how to pronounce Beyonce or Trayvon, bet you'll be pissed. I don't get this blasé/borderline snarky affect with which you & Tambay like to pepper your posts. By all means, keep it up if that's who you are, but people don't come here for all that.

  • Sergio | April 14, 2012 11:39 AM

    O.K. so I'm an asshole. Whachagonnado? Have me arrested? Shoot me?

  • Afrostyling | April 14, 2012 11:21 AM

    So what? How does it pertain to the article is the question?

  • Afrostyling | April 13, 2012 10:18 PMReply

    You dont know how to pronounce his name because you are not Yoruba. I really dont see why you felt the need to interject that little comment in the article?

  • Sheba | April 13, 2012 10:59 PM

    Agreed. It's really an ignorant thing to say. Something you'd expect from a white person not on a black film blog, especially one that claims to be of the AFRICAN DIASPORA. And no surprise it's Sergio who wrote this. The typos all over give it away SMH.
