The Reluctant Fundamentalist: Trailer
It's perhaps not entirely obvious yet just how brilliant an actor Riz Ahmed is. If you haven't seen 4 Lions, of Shifty slap yourself. Seriously.
Increasingly making his mark on Hollywoodtown, we're sure it won't be long before the South Londoner will be making acceptance speeches and taking power meetings with, like, Ari Gold in Soho House (if he's not already).
In his latest release, Riz stars alongside hard-hitters Kiefer Sutherland, Kate Hudson and Liev Schreiber in a political thriller of epic proportions. Riz plays a Pakistani born Princeton graduate who is a big shot on Wall Street, who is pushed to the limits by his adopted American homeland in the wake of 9/11.
Directed by Salaam Bombay's lenswoman Mira Nair, true to form, this looks like another interesting project from Riz, that will challenge audiences and Hollywoodland alike.
