DJIMON HOUNSOU (Motherland) received a Golden Globe nomination and won an Image Award for his portrayal of Cinque in Steven Spielberg's "Amistad,” which marked his first feature film starring role. He went on to co-star with Russell Crowe in the Oscar®-winning Best Picture "Gladiator.” He most recently starred in "The Four Feathers,” and includes among his other film credits "Deep Rising,” "Unlawful Entry” and "Stargate.” On television, Hounsou had a recurring role on the top-rated television series "ER.”

A native of Benin, West Africa, Hounsou moved to Paris when he was 13. At the age of 22, he was discovered by noted fashion designer Thierry Mughler who enlisted him for several design campaigns, as well as his book Thierry Mughler's Photographs. Hounsou was also one of the late Herb Ritts' subjects in the book Men and Women.

He was subsequently spotted by director David Fincher who cast him in three music videos: Steve Winwood's "Roll With It,” Madonna's "Express Yourself” and Paula Abdul's "Straight Up.” He also appeared in Janet Jackson's video "Love Will Never Do Without You.”
