Tika Sumpter is riding high in Hollywood! Fresh from her role in the widely popular comedy Ride Along, Sumpter is set to tackle a very different character…one of James Brown’s lovers.
In the new James Brown biopic Get On Up, Chadwick Boseman stars as Brown, while Sumpter plays Yvonne Fair, one of his background singers and lovers. And while their romance is sure to sizzle on-screen, we’re sure that’s were it will end.
Tika tells HipHollywood that Chadwick “did awesome playing James Brown”, but “you’ll just have to wait and see for the rest.”
Get On Up is set to hit theaters August 1st.
