Tongayi Chirisa lands role in latest “Transformers: Rise of the the Beasts Cheetor”

Zimbabweans on Twitter reacted with delight that locally-grown actor Tongayi Arnold Chirisa has been revealed as one of the voice artists behind “Transformers: Rise of the the Beasts Cheetor”.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take viewers on a ’90s globetrotting adventure and reintroduce the action and spectacle that have enthralled moviegoers across the world. It will also bring the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to the ongoing conflict between the Autobots and Decepticons on Earth. The movie, which is helmed by Steven Caple Jr. and stars Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, will be released on June 9, 2023.

Chirisa is no stranger to the limelight, having bagged blockbuster Hollywood roles in his career. While he rose to prominence playing the role of detective Trevor Davies in Zimbabwe’s first soapie, Studio 263, he has gone on to scale greater heights, featuring in several high-profile productions in the United States of America and in neighboring South Africa.

The actor co-starred with Leon Schuster in Mr. Bones 2: Back from the Past, where he played the role of Hekule, the King of Kuvukiland.

The 41-year-old Chirisa also landed a major role as Man Friday in the series, Crusoe, while he also made appearances on the long-running series NCIS: Los Angeles, in addition to roles on American Horror Story, Diamonds, Skin, and Mrs. Mandela.

Chirisa has also played Man Friday on NBC’s Crusoe television series, Father Nicholas on The Jim Gaffigan Show.
