Black History Celebration
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko from ‘Lost’) has been campaigning for more than a year to play Marvel’s Black Panther – and as he tells us, that passion has not died. During the press line for Universal’s prequel to The Thing, I had a chance to speak with actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who fans best associate with the character of “Mr. Eko” from Lost. Aside from talking about his role in The Thing prequel, the proper pronunciation of his name or the many accents he seems to have mastered, I took the opportunity to ask Adewale about the long-standing reports that he is interested in a future role as Marvel’s Black Panther.
