Chiwetel Ejiofor

You wouldn't peg this English actor as the type to play a gangster, but Chiwetel played the role well as Huey Lucas in the film American Gangster.

Most recently the actor has taken on one of the biggest roles of his career, as the lead character, Solomon Northup in 12 Years a Slave.
