Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars came out to the Directors Guild of America Monday night for the premiere of 12 Years A Slave. Directed by Steve McQueen, the film is being praised for its in depth look at slavery, something many say hasn’t been seen on screen since the TV movie Roots.
HipHollywood caught up with Oscar nominated actor Louis Gossett Jr. who starred in Roots 36 years ago to find out how the 12 Years A Slave measures up.
“Roots we had to tame down …. this is real, explained Louis Gossett Jr. “This is going to set the bar really high.”
Russell Simmons also applauded the film and said he hopes this opens the door for more films about slavery and the history of Blacks in the U.S. to be made.
