We all know Chadwick Boseman (42, Draft Day) is a talented actor, but stepping into James Brown’s shoes for the biopic Get On Up was no easy feet…pun intended.

“I became passionate about learning his vocabulary and his dialect,” explained Boseman. “We had an amazing choreographer … I would go home and practice even after 5 hour rehearsals.”

Directed by  Tate Taylor (The Help) the film follows Brown from his days growing up in Georgia to reaching superstardom including performing at the world famous Apollo Theater where HipHollywood’s Jasmine Simpkins sat down with the cast, including Octavia Spencer, Nelsan Ellis and Jill Scott.

Get On Up hits theaters August 1st.
