Aldis Hodge covers the latest issue of Man About Town: 2020 - Chapter 2
“This film exposes a conversation that resulted in monumental after-effects... You get to see all of these after-effects from these conversations and you get to see so much progress. So let this be a reminder, a beacon, to allow people to understand we can have these conversations. And with action afterwards, we can create history.”
Directed by Regina King, upcoming film One Night in Miami tells the fictionalised account of an evening shared by human rights activist Malcom X, soul legend Sam Cooke, football player-turned actor Jim Brown, and boxer Cassius Clay (soon to become Muhammad Ali). Speaking to King, Aldis Hodge, who plays Jim Brown, reflects on the pressures and privilege of taking on the role, the impact he hopes the project will have, the best advice he’s been given and how he’s finally learnt to implement it.
