David Oyelowo, "Selma"
Who does he play: Civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.
Possible Oscar clip: There are almost too many to choose from, but MLK's triumphant speech on the steps of the Alabama State Capitol building is tailor made for an Oscars show. It's one of the many times Oyelowo makes you believe that, if he's not the actual Civil Rights leader, he's surely a modern-day preacher playing him and not a British actor raised in and around Oxford, England.
