Ving Rhames has nabbed the lead role of Sam in Master Herald...and the Boys, the film adaptation of a 1982 Broadway play. Danny Glover portrayed Sam in the previous stage production.
The movie is shooting on location in South Africa, and Lonny Price, who starred in the Broadway version, will make his directorial debut with the project. Price also directed the 2003 revival. The story takes place in South Africa during the Apartheid era and depicts institutionalized racism and hatred. Rhames will play Sam, a dignified waiter and ballroom dancing aficionado who becomes a father figure to Freddie Highmore's character, Hally.
