Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou stars in Warner Brothers’ The Legend of Tarzan alongside Alexander Skarsgård, Christopher Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson. The iconic story follows the journey of Tarzan after he’s has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament.
He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about filming with Jackson, his first “Tarzan” experience and much more.
How the film will connect with audiences:
“This is a very mature Tarzan. This is a Tarzan that has seemed to lost his foundation. He’s made some mistakes that he has to fix himself. In this story a lot of the social issues that we deal with today are in it,” he said.
The Legend of Tarzan is in theaters Friday, July 1st.
