Chewy joins Salt [Updated!]

Chewy joins Salt [Updated!]

Update! : Chewitel is now confirmed. He plays CIA counter intelligence officer Peabody,who is obsessed with proving that Angelina’s character Everlyn A Salt is a Russian sleeper spy. Its rumoured that the actor may have been signed for sequels.

One of the best actors around at the moment would have to be Chiwetel Ejiofor. The man is doing fabulous work – and rarely makes a wrong move. My personal favourite performance of the British actor is as ‘The Operative’, the cunning rouge of Joss Whedon’s “Serenity”. The movie mightn’t have done much, but I believe it got Ejiofor noticed. Since then, the 34-year-old actor has embodied such terrific characters as Lola in “Kinky Boots”, Luke in “Children of Men”, Huey Lucas in “American Gangster”, and recently, martial-arts guru Mike Terry in David Mamet’s “Redbelt”.

Phillip Noyce has had the smarts to snap up Ejiofor for his next picture, “Salt”. He’ll join Angelina Jolie and Liev Schreiber for the Columbia Pictures’ actioner, which centers on a CIA officer who is fingered as a Russian sleeper spy.

Before he locks and loads for “Salt”, Ejiofor will be seen in Roland Emmerich’s big-budget blockbuster “2012” which theaters in November.
