We’ve all become far too familiar with hearing tragic stories of how our artists die hungry with little to no recognition from the industries they help grow.

We see this a lot with actors and musicians and what follows, especially after hearing the news of their passing is the heart-wrenching stories of how they died as struggling artists with little to nothing in their name.

But hopefully, for this legendary actor, things will change for the better for his career.

A picture of actor - Mac Mathunjwa went viral over the weekend after a Twitter user by the alias @ZooxNumba1 tweeted a photo standing alongside the actor all smiles.

His tweet was accompanied with the caption: 

“I bumped into this legend in town today, he told me that his industry does not take care of his likes. Had to convince him for a pic. Asked him about his next move, he said he would love to join @TheQueen_Mzansi #TheQueenMzansi @Connie_Ferguson @Shona_Ferguson"

The tweet went viral as people expressed their excitement in seeing that Mathunjwa was still alive and that he still has an interest in acting. Especially considering that some people have not seen him on their TV screens in a while.

Twitter users began giving Mr Mathunjwa roles, should he get the opportunity to either act on The Queen or Isibaya.

These are just some of our favourite reactions from the Mathunjwa tweet.

Hmm, Mr Mathunjwa as Petronella's father or high school lover? Which role sounds better?

The creative juices began flowing when other Twitter users suggested that a role as Schumacher's father would be better suited for Mathunjwa.

While others debated whether he'd be a suitable long-last brother to Uncle Brutus.

We wonder if Ferguson Films will catch wind of this thread and maybe write him into the storyline. No pressure though.
