Actors don't come as talented or respected as Djimon Hounsou. The thesp has come a long way from popping up in Paula Abdul's "Straight Up" video, breaking out in Jim Sheridan's "In America," and lining up a diverse array of projects from blockbusters like "The Island" and "Constantine" to more dramatic fare like "Blood Diamond" and "The Tempest" and in the process, he's snagged himself two Academy Award nominations. While his most recent efforts seem to be in dodgy looking international pics like "White Elephant" and "Special Forces," the actor is ready to take on a pretty intriguing role in what is set to be a pretty ambitious literary adaptation.
