Watch David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King in clip from Oscar nominee Selma


It's quite something for an actor to embody an iconic figure. It's something else entirely when said actor completely disappears within the skin of the person they're playing.

That's what happens in this clip from the Oscar nominated drama Selma, in which British actor David Oyelowo (sadly overlooked for an Academy Award) gives a stirring, fiery performance as legendary civil rights activist Martin Luther King.

In the scene, King makes the demand for the black vote – take a look and get a glimpse at the intensity of Oyelowo's acting.
