While it remains to be seen whether The Fantastic Four‘s Ioan Gruffudd will be a compelling leading man in Walden Media’s film on the life of William Wilberforce, the supporting cast is shaping up nicely.
Albert Finney, last seen in Oceans 12, best seen in many superior films.
Romola Garai, who stole every scene she visited in last year’s Vanity Fair.
Michael Gambon of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Gosford Park.
Rufus Sewell of Dark City.
Ciaran Hinds of Persuasion and BBC/HBO co-production Rome.
And singer-songwriter Youssou N’Dour.
