David Oyelowo (Selma, Interstellar, The Butler) was in-town to discuss and promote his new film “Captive, opening in theaters September 18th. For those aware of David’s work, the role of Brian Nichols is quite the opposite of the fine actor’s personality, but he was drawn to the role due to its “story, complexity, and elements of humanity and spirituality”. In addition to the film, David also discussed his (unknown) familiarity with Saint Louis and his affiliation with Saint Louis Family Church in Fenton (He sends his kids there every summer). We also discussed his desire to avoid typecasting, as well as how he was able to embody Brian Nichols (he only had trial footage to study)!
We want to thank the extremely-talented David Oyelowo for taking the time to speak with us about his new film “Captive”! Please listen to the interview in its entirety below.
