This is the first Academy Award nomination for Djimon Hounsou. As Mateo, Djimon plays a man dying of AIDS who is befriended by the two young daughters of Irish immigrants.



Djimon first gained acting attention in Steven Spielberg's Amistad. Since Amistad, Djimon has done countless character roles that most actors would kill for.



His memorable performance opposite Russell Crowe's Oscar winning role in Gladiator is still fresh. Djimon's performance opposite Heath Ledger in The Four Feathers is considered the bright spot in his career.
