According to Deadline, Michael Kenneth Williams is the latest to join the cast of "12 Years a Slave", the true-life story of Solomon Northrup, a free American black man who was kidnapped in 1841 and forced into slavery for twelve years on a Louisiana cotton plantation.

"12 Years a Slave" is based on Northrup's autobiography("Twelve Years a Slave", published 1853). Williams will join castmates Chiwetel Ejiofor("Children of Men"), Michael Fassbender("Prometheus"), Paul Dano("Being Flynn"), and Benedict Cumberbatch ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy").

Steve McQueen("Shame", "Hunger") will direct the film, which he wrote along with John Ridley("Red Tails").

Williams can currently be seen in "You're Nobody 'til Somebody Kills You", and is now finishing up post-production work in the Western "They Die by Dawn".
