January 09, 2017

The star-studded cast of Black Panther just got brighter. Sterling K. Brown, the breakout star of This Is Us and The People v. O.J. Simpson, has signed on for a role in the upcoming superhero movie, Marvel Studios announced Thursday.

He’ll portray N’Jobu, a figure from the titular hero’s past.

Brown joins an ensemble that includes Chadwick Boseman as the Wakandan leader and protector T’Challa/Black Panther, as well as Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, and Danai Gurira. Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed) is directing the film, which is scheduled to hit theaters Feb. 16, 2018.

Responding to the announcement on Twitter, Brown said he’s “Beyond thrilled to be joining this immensely talented group of actors & storytellers!” He added, “Thank you for a seat at the table!”

Brown, 40, had a big year in 2016, winning an Emmy for his performance as Christopher Darden in The People v. O.J. Simpson and starring in the new NBC series This Is Us. He’s also up for a Golden Globe tonight for his People v. O.J. work.

“This is Us” Star Sterling K. Brown at Golden Globes

January 09, 2017

Holy abs!

This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown gave fans an intimate look inside his preparations for the Golden Globes on Sunday, posting several behind-the-scenes videos to his Instagram account throughout the afternoon.

A Golden Globe nominee for his sterling performance in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Brown kicked things off with an adorable video of his closet, which he admits is filled with new suits he’s had to purchase over the year that he can only wear once.

“I’m like a woman, I have nothing to wear!” he joked, before revealing his dapper Golden Globes look: a tailored blue suit, matching socks and sunglasses.

Brown literally left nothing to the imagination, sharing a time-lapse video of himself in his boxers getting dressed as he put on his fancy new tux in the bedroom, showing off his incredibly buff body. Those arms! Those abs!

The actor also shared video of himself playing with his two young sons, calling them his “two favorite people in the world,” as they took a break during Globes prep.

Brown and his date, wife and actress Ryan Michelle Bathe (in a shimmery, pink floor-length David Meister gown), also adorably posed for the camera.

Before Brown and his wife took off for the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, where the Globes are taking place, he made sure to get one final “good luck kiss” from his youngest son.

It’s been a whirlwind 12 months for Brown, who recently signed on for Marvel’s anticipated movie, Black Panther. In December, ET spoke with the actor, who recalled the first moment he felt “accepted” by Hollywood.
“When I walked up on stage at the Emmys and when people stood up, it was a really sort of emotional overwhelming moment. It was like I had been accepted,” he confessed, referencing his Emmy win in September. “Like, people I’d been watching for years and appreciated their work for years, like they appreciated me. That was a cool moment.”

Sterling K. Brown won the Emmy for best supporting actor in a limited series or a television movie on Sunday night for his performance in The People v. O.J. Simpson.

The actor beat out Hugh Laurie in The Night Manager, Jesse Plemons in Fargo, David Schwimmer in The People v. O.J. Simpson, John Travolta in The People v. O.J. Simpson and Bokeem Woodbine in Fargo.

Brown shed tears at the podium thanking friends and family from his hometown for his first Emmy win and also thanked the TV Academy, saying, “A lot of you may not have known who I was, but you checked the box anyway. And that makes me very very happy.”

The actor gave a shout-out to co-star Sarah Paulson before leaving the stage: “I love you. Where you lead, I just try to support.”

With five of the six possible Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie, FX was basically a lock to take home a statue in the tight category at Sunday’s 68th Annual Primetime Emmys. To absolutely no one’s surprise, the award went to Sterling K. Brown for his performance as Christopher Darden on The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

In his emotional acceptance speech Brown thanked his father. “Sterling Brown Jr., I changed what people called me at age 16 so I could hear your name every day of my life. I love you, daddy,” he said tearfully.

Brown, who’s been acting in film and TV since 2002 but hasn’t been in the true spotlight before The People v. O.J. Simpson, also thanked the Television Academy for “checking the box.” He also thanked series creator Ryan Murphy for “giving a brother a chance.”
