Hakeem Kae-Kazim talks about his latest film Black Gold

In Film, Hakeem Kae-Kazim on April 13, 2011 at 1:16 am


Hakeem Kae-Kazim talks to Quanda Graves about his new film ‘Black Gold’. 

Tall, dark and handsome with the brightest smile you’ve ever seen; actor extraor- dinaire, Hakeem Kae-Kazim allowed California Crusaders Newspaper (CCN) to sit with him and talk about life, his love of acting and the characters he’s played thus far. Charming and we…lcoming he was, as we met again for the third time, for Hakeem has been a busy man.

As I covered the past Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) events of opening night and night of tribute, he was there both times. First he was there to support the premiere movie “35 and Ticking” for Russ Parr, sec- ond, he attended the night of tribute as he was a presenter to Tessa Thompson for the rising star award and lastly he had a mini spoof film at PAFF showing, entitled CIS: Las Gidi. Not to mention he had recently casted roles on Criminal Minds, Navy NCIS Los Angeles and the movie, The Fourth Kind as a professor (which he shared that he enjoyed playing that character very much).

Hakeem, famously known in South Africa came to the states five years ago and hit the ground running with no intentions to stop. Hakeem has been around for a very long time and has definitely mastered his craft in theatre, television, and movies and has won many awards.

I guess some would ask if he is done since he has covered so many feats in his ca- reer, but that’s not the case because when you speak with Hakeem you’ll understand that acting is what he loves to do and in his words “I love acting. I can’t see myself doing anything else. There is nothing better than doing what you love to do.”

You can catch Hakeem in the upcoming movie “Black Gold” out later this year. If you would like to see Hakeem’s interview please go to www.calcrusnews.com
