The actor, 42, swaps movies for music with his new album mi Mandela

What inspired you to make this album?

I made this to express how it was to play Nelson Mandela [in 2013’s Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom], because I couldn’t do it in words. At the same time my dad was dying, so this album is dedicated to the memory of both men.

You also deejay. Any other hidden talents?

I’m actually learning how to play the guitar. I got a little six-string acoustic.

Who is your dream collaborator?

Bob Marley! Aw, man, I would have loved that.
