Chiwetel Ejiofor is the talk of the town for his portrayal of Solomon Northup in 12 Years a Slave, but the British actor will soon return to history to play jazz musician Louis Lester in the upcoming Starz miniseries Dancing on the Edge.
In the five-episode series, set against the backdrop of 1930s England, Ejiofor plays the debonair band leader of his self-titled “Louis Lester Band,” who befriends an ambitious music journalist named Stanley. Ejiofor is joined by Matthew Goode, Jacqueline Bissett and Emmy winner John Goodman for the period drama.
We've got an exclusive clip of Ejiofor as Louis Lester. Check out the video below for your peek at Dancing on the Edge and watch the series on Saturdays at 9 p.m. on Starz.
