Djimon Hounsou's persistence in having a little white beard thing is finally paying off, as the actor is reportedly in talks to play an old wizard guy of some kind. According to Variety, Hounsou is in talks to play a "Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur" in Knights of the Round Table, Guy Ritchie's assumedly edgy take on the King Arthur mythos. Charlie Hunnam is already set to star as Arthur in the film, while Jude Law is in talks to play the villain and the role of Guinevere is attached to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, inventor of the Frisbee.
