Again Latinoreview reveals the casting results for another character in the upcoming Conan Movie. This time it’s Ukafa:
Ukafa is in his 30s-40, very dark-skinned African or African American, massively framed at six-foot-five, gold-toothed, hardened by a lifetime of war, a leader of Kushite Tribemen from the savannahs of Kush. Ukafa is Khalar Singhâ€™s second in command, jealous that Singhâ€™s son, Fariq, will one day be warlord. He obeys his leader but plots the overthrow of his son. He is a mighty warrior and unbeatable in battleâ€”until he comes face to face with Conan.
It seems that Mixed Martial Arts fighter Bob Sapp will be filling the part of this villain character. At least the description fits him pretty well. And he has the wanted “gangsta” appeal too.
Since I absolutely hated the character description from the very first second I laid eyes on it, I personally couldn’t care less which actor is cast for bad gangsta dude with the golden tooth. It’s just a dissapointment, that all the rewriting could not smack some sense into the script and get rid of this over-the-top Bombatta copy.
