British actor Aml Ameen has landed his first Hollywood role in the film Red Tails, the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American pilots to fly in a combat squadron during World War II.
Produced by George Lucas (Star Wars), Directed by Anthony Hemingway (The Wire), the film stars David Oyelowo (Spooks, Last King of Scotland), Bryan Cranston (Malcom in the Middle), Ne-Yo, Method Man and Jazmine Sullivan.
Aml will be travelling to Prague to begin shooting this month and says,
“To all my fellow dreamers in The City, and the UK, let this show you that it can be done. You’ve seen me from Kidulthood to The Bill move onto Fallout, then on to Silent Witness. This all started out with a dream, and a belief that I can do it. I’m not where I want to be yet, but this is progress. So when you see me in my small role in the Hollywood film, root for me, shout me out! Because I am you! And you can do it too”.
I know that Method Man can act, but Ne-Yo and Jazmine Sullivan????
Anyway congratulations Aml!!!!
