      What's so special about this? He's a good actor, but I don't see anything Oscary in this clip.

      Sad news tonight as Mandela passed away. Will this affect the release of this film in any way? Rest in peace, Mandela. Farewell Bafana:(

      Are they going to have Elba speak a line or two of Afrikaans like Morgan Freeman did in Invictus? Because for me that alone was worth the price of the ticket.

      @matt, if you did your research and not just learn from Sky News you might find out a few interesting things about the man, and his wife. I'm not getting into an argument on this site, but seriously, just google it, its not difficult to find the atrocities he has been involved in.

      Not only do you know nothing of which you speak (do some real research - not just google - the internet is full of misinformation), but to make such comments about someone who has just passed is disgusting and disrespectful, and making such obviously outrageous comments about a sensitive topic makes you appear a) desperate for attention, and b) eager for an argument. Reply however you want, I won't be reading your comments.

      Yes you will, we both know you are reading this right now. Your argument seems to be that just because he is dead, no-one can speak ill of him? Thank f**k people DIDN'T think that about Jimmy Saville. Did people in this country mourn Gaddaffi or Hussain? No I don't think they did. I'm sorry if i dont tow the line that he was some sort of demi-god, as you seem to think i should. As for your internet and misinformation, he himself in his book said he signed off (from prison no less) on the church street bombing, killing and wounding over 230 innocent people, including women and children, all for his own political cause. He could of got out of jail earlier, if only he renounced violence, but he wouldn't do it, he was a huge advocate of violence and in the 60's loved a good necklacing. THAT is disgusting.

      It is strange that a Christian should say that he is willing to die when Jesus said "If you live and believe in me you will never die". John 11:26.
