Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, who recently spoke about his relationship with Rita Dominic has revealed in an interview with Pulse Nigeria the one role he would love to play and the one he would never play.

 He also revealed why he doesn’t want to be labeled ‘a Nollywood actor’. See why below...
“I have never played a gay role and I have no desire of playing anything like that. I have had a long career, a lot of movies, I have pretty much stretched everything that there is.

“But is there a role out there [that I haven’t played]? I can’t think of any off the top of my head.” 
He, however, revealed the real-life character he would love to interpret on screen.
“It’s a man with the depth of Denzel [Washington.] Denzel is not just an actor, that’s how I don’t want to be perceived as well. 
“That’s why I’m always going off and on to go educate myself some more, elevate my mind some more, invest in things that are outside the confines, fail in many more things and succeed as well as I go.” 
He further stated that he doesn’t want to be tagged ‘a Nollywood actor,” sharing his reasons. 
“I don’t want anyone to label me a Nollywood actor. I want to be a business man, I want to be a philanthropist, I want to help people in my lifetime, leave my signature in the stamps of time. 
I want people to wake up and say ‘hey, if you didn’t do this, this wouldn’t haven’t happened. And I want to say the same of people.”


  1. He's not limiting himself to just an actor.
    That's interesting Jim.
    Nice read.

  2. All he dies now is granting interviews.

  3. He seems to have really changed from the interviews he grants these days
