He’s first *master* named William Ford we learn is what you’d call a *good master.* He’s still very much a slave owner, but, unlike the plantation owner Northup spends much of his 12 years with, Ford is actually kind to his slaves. He demonstrates a genuine care and compassion for them that other *masters* most certainly do not. And initially, it looks as if Northup’s 12 years, though while still in bondage as a slave, working for Ford, may not be the worst experience a slave could have at the time.
Looks like Benedict will play this role.
Yep, it looks like so. Unlike Fassy’s role Edwin Epps, Benedict’s role is relatively a small part. I doubt he would have much screen time :(
That ridiculous face she is pulling + that oversized chair swing + that onesie (says “Future Mad Scientist”) = My niece better stay this awesome forever
