Dr John Kani added another highlight to his already illustrious career after he shared the red carpet with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston at the premiere of Murder Mystery in Hollywood
John, who stars in the brand new Netflix film is not one to be star struck and looked as calm as ever in a setting that would have had most of us fangirling/fanboying over some of Hollywood’s biggest names.
However, he did not look out of place as he attended the film’s world premiere in Los Angeles on Monday evening (Tuesday morning South African time).
Murder Mystery is a classic whodunit which tells the story of a police officer from New York who takes his wife on a lavish European holiday. Things go pear shaped when they are framed for the murder of a wealthy businessman. Dr John appears numerous times in this plot as he plays the role of Colonel Ulenga.
John celebrated his new role as he showed up to the glitzy premiere alongside his son, Atandwa
The two of them were dressed to the nines in proudly South African attire (would you expect anything else?) as they rocked garments from popular fashion house, Laduma by Maxhosa.
A proud Atandwa celebrated his father’s new role when they posed for pictures before the premiere:
John represented our country well with one of the most expensive group photos in Hollywood as he stood alongside Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler, Luke Evans and more of the film’s cast members on the red carpet:

The esteemed actor’s CV appears to be growing more and more impressive by the year
Along with his role in Murder Mystery, Dr John will be starring in the upcoming Lion King remake and has famously starred in some of Marvel’s biggest blockbusters to date including Black Panther and Captain America: Civil War.
So when can we in South Africa watch Murder Mystery? As it turns out – today (Wednesday 12 June)! The film is available for streaming on the popular video-on-demand platform and you can be sure that a chunk of the views will be coming from South Africa.
Is it safe to say that John Kani is a South African film legend?
