Chadwick Boseman And Sterling K. Brown Remember When There Could Only Be One Black Actor In A Movie

October 06, 2017

Not too long ago, the idea of two prominent black actors starring in the same film was practically unheard of. So the fact that Chadwick Boseman and Sterling K. Brown share the screen in Marshall — a movie about Thurgood Marshall (Boseman) defending Richard Spell (Brown) after a white woman (Kate Hudson) accuses him of rape and attempted murder — is particularly worth celebrating. “There was a period of time where it would only be one person,” Chadwick Boseman told BuzzFeed News. “It’d be Denzel [Washington] in this movie, it’d be [Lawrence] Fishburne in that movie, Sam Jackson in that movie, and Morgan Freeman in this one. … Very few opportunities where you would see them working together.”

So while there’s still quite a long way to go until there’s true equality in Hollywood, Boseman and Brown are glad to be a part of the improvements that’ve been made. “I feel blessed to be in a time where I can do this movie with him … and I can do a movie with Michael B. Jordan and it’s okay,” Boseman said, referring to Marvel’s Black Panther. “It doesn’t even have to be such a big deal because the opportunities are not so scarce. And that’s an important moment to note.”

That progress is reflected in both actors’ upcoming projects. In February, Boseman and Brown will reunite in Black Panther, which co-stars Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, and Forest Whittaker. In addition to working with Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones on NBC’s This Is Us, Brown will co-star with Trevante Rhodes and Keegan-Michael Key in next summer’s The Predator.

Brown hopes similar substantive opportunities are afforded to actors of every background. “I want to see a diverse enough landscape where everybody gets a chance to shine,” he told BuzzFeed News. “You know, everybody gets a chance to eat … and not just a tasty side dish, but folks are getting some meat and potatoes into their bodies.”

Sterling Visits The Talk to Discuss Marshall

October 06, 2017

Here is a clip from Sterling’s interview on The Talk to discuss his new film Marshall … I think this is a good reminder to the importance of this issue and it is opening up a needed discussion.

Emmy-winning actor Sterling K. Brown opens up about his new movie ‘Marshall,’ about Young Thurgood Marshall who worked as a lawyer for the NAACP. “It’s such a powerful sort of reminder to me as the history of this country and how intrinsically tied racism is in it. It will never go away, but you can’t ignore it,” explains Brown. “It’s only through the discussion and active sort of like recognition that this is something that needs to be addressed that you can actually move forward. So I feel like today, 2017, we tend to think the momentum of society is to always progress… but sometimes it feels for me that we may have taken a step back. But, you know, when you take a look at a movie like this, I hope it jars people to the reality of “no, we can’t go back anymore. It’s time to move forward.”

Sterling K. Brown, Chadwick Boseman and Josh Gad Introduce Marshall in Theaters October 13

October 06, 2017

Open Road Film has released a new trailer with an introduction by Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, & Sterling!

If You Want Freedom, You Have to Fight For It.

Starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown, and James Cromwell, director Reginald Hudlin’s MARSHALL, based on the early career of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, follows the young lawyer (Chadwick Boseman) to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) against his wealthy white socialite employer (Kate Hudson) in a sexual assault and attempted murder trial. In need of a high-profile victory but muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall is partnered with young Jewish lawyer Samuel Friedman (Josh Gad) who has never tried a case. They struggle against a hostile storm of fear and prejudice, driven to discover the truth in a sensationalized trial that helped lay the groundwork for the Civil Rights Movement.

Official Trailer of Marshall

June 22, 2017

Open Road Films has released a trailer for Sterling’s new film Marshall.

Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The new motion picture, MARSHALL, is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman, a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell, accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing, of sexual assault and attempted murder.
