Terrence Howard is Nelson Mandela in "Winnie"

Posted: May 8th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Terrence Howard is Nelson Mandela in "Winnie"Submit Comment
Terrence Howard (Iron Man) will portray Nelson Mandela in "Winnie," based on the story of Winnie Mandela, Nelson Mandela's former wife. The title character will be played by Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls).

While Nelson Mandela is a universally sympathetic figure for his struggle against apartheid, his former wife is a far more complicated figure. She has been depicted as the mother and wife who was a steadfast supporter of her activist husband and who was jailed herself for campaigning for his release and fighting against apartheid. Her image was subsequently tarnished by association with a bodyguard who murdered a 14-year old alleged informer, and she was later convicted of fraud.

Darrell Roodt is directing the $15 million historical drama. Production is set to start on May 31st in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held prisoner for 18 years.

Lol. He couldn't even cut it as rhoadey in iron man. He can't play Mandela. Where's Morgan Freeman? If he ain't available he better be filming scenes for the dark knight sequel

lame... no way he can out act Morgan Freeman as Mandela... Go do a Tyler Perry movie... im sure he's got like 234234 up his ass... and to be in the cast... all you need is to be black.

@encore- would'nt that be "Weiner"?

@johnny- Marvel always wanted Don Cheadle for Rhodes but he wasn't available, and as Terrence Howard was the first to be signed to Iron Man he was paid the most because no one had faith in the project...well we all knw the rest of the story.

On subject- I don't give a rats arse about this.

@ Dave.... Regardless of the situation, IMO Howard sucked as rhoadey. Don't know why he spoke as if he was barely hitting puberty. When he first came to the scene he was cool but I think he's loosing it

@encore- I can see your resoning.

@johnny- I knw what you mean, his early stuff was really good "Hustle & Flow" example.

@ranger- Will he sound like Barry White?

@ Dave..... Hell, even his part in Big Mamas House was alot better than what he's been doing lately

@ Dave.... You smoke weed? If so next time just rent itbsi that way it isn't that bad to tolerate. Then you'll know what I'm talkin about. Just don't watch part 2. There ain't enough weed in the world to make you tolerate that sh*t. I made that mistake and learnt the hard way

@johnny- don't knw if I can watch BMH at all even stoned.
Never liked any of Martin Lawrences movies, only decent one he had was "National Security" only coz of Steve Zhan, and caught College Road Trip" 3/4's of the way in and after wished I had'nt!!
DaveThePhotoGuy writes:

@johnny- no amount of drugs in the world could help me sit through BMH, no really a fan of Martin Lawrences films only one I found funny was "National Sacurity2 and that was because of Steve Zhan, for some obsurd reason I watched "College Road Trip" never get that time back I tell you.

If they ever make a movie called: 'Whiney'... Howard's your girl.

But to play Mandela? I don't think so.
Max Rockatansky Junior writes:

He's a decent actor, but is he playing a young Nelson Mandela, or is he doing a Downey Jr, like Robert did with " Chaplin " ?
DaveThePhotoGuy writes:
on May 9th, 2010 at 6:36:35 AM

@Freudian_Nightmare- either that or should really concentrate on one thing at a time.

*mental note* when teaching 15 yr old asian gilrs to suck a d*ck don't write comments on internet sites*

they are going to need a sh*t load of make up to make him look like the younger Mandela.

I know that actors can have huge egos but Terrence seemed to have let his go so out of control that Hollywood is kinda ignoring him now. At least it seems that way to me.
Bunny X writes:

@Horror, you are absolutely right. His ego is a huge problem in H-wood. So many are sick of his "Second Coming" attitude as am I.
Nothing he does in genuine except for his part in Crash where he was acting like a bitch.
