Ah….Africans in film and on television.  Gotta love it.

The Following

Bambadjan Bamba plays Sami on the show, ‘The Following‘.    For those who haven’t watched it yet, ‘The Following‘ is a brilliant twist on serial killers.  THE FBI estimates there are currently up to 300 active serial killers in the United States.
