Idris Elba takes on a different look than we’re used to (all fro, no facial scruff) for his role as Nelson Mandela in the forthcoming film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Elba stars opposite Naomie Harris, who plays Winnie Mandela. In a new clip from the Justin Chadwick-directed film, we see Idris as a young Attorney Mandela, handling business in a 1950s court room.

The flick opens in the U.S. through the Weinstein company on Nov. 29. Watch the movie snippet above.
