It’s confirmed, actor Chadwick Boseman will play James Brown in the biopic of the Godfather of Soul.

In the film directed by The Help’s Tate Taylor, Boseman will portray the soul singer in the film which will chronicle his journey to fame, from poverty in Augusta Ga, to becoming one of the founding fathers of funk.

Boseman wowed critics and fans world wide after he portrayed Jackie Robinson in 42.

During a sit down interview with Boseman about the Jackie Robinson biopic, the actor shared how he prepared to play such an icon. “I read books, watched documentaries. I had to be a detective to a certain degree to kind of find out who he was, and how was this type of person able to make it through,” he shared.

Filming for the James Brown biopic will start this Fall in Mississippi.

Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”

Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
