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 Literally Ran Through Koreatown to Get His Wife to Date Him

October 06, 2017

Sterling was interviewed by the ladies of the Talk yesterday and shared some of his experiences dating Ryan.

Now this is love at first sight.

Sterling K. Brown and his wife Ryan Michelle Bathe have been married for 10 years, but before she agreed to date him, she made him literally chase after her.

On Thursday, the This is Us star stopped by The Talk to spill the details on just how he won her over.

“Is it true that you had to work really hard to win Ryan over?” asked co-host Sharon Osbourne.

“Yes ma’am, it is,” Brown, 41, replied before being cut off by Osbourne, who informed the Emmy-award winning actor he didn’t need to be so formal; he could just call her “Mrs. O.”

“So we dated off and on in college and then we broke up for three and a half years before we came back into each other’s lives,” Brown began. “She was on the treadmill working out, and I had this epiphany, ‘I have to go tell this woman she’s the love of my life.’”

“I go to her apartment, I tell her, and she’s like, ‘Well, I’m working out right now,’ and I was like, ‘No, I can see that — I’ll just talk to you while you’re on the treadmill,’ and she’s like, ‘Well, I feel like going outside. So I’m gonna go on a run,’ ” he continued.

“So I’m like dressed [in a suit] and she starts running through Koreatown and I start running along with her,” he added. “Brother had to work, but it was well-worth while.”

Brown and Bathe, also 41, wed in 2007 and share two children: Andrew, 6, and Amaré, 2.

Brown has been known to fawn over his wife in sweet social media posts, like when he captioned an Instagram video of his wife getting ready for the 2017 Emmys, “Don’t hurt ’em, Bird! #emmys2017 How can it get any better than this?”
