Fresh update on "chadwick boseman" discussed on Filmspotting
"Viola davis there as legendary blues singer. Marini in the opening scene from ma rainey's black bottom currently out in limited release it comes exclusively to net flicks on the eighteenth of this month. So of an early review here. Ma rainey's black bottom is an adaptation of the nineteen eighty two. Tony nominated play by august. Wilson along with fences is part of wilson's ten play cycle which chronicles african american life in the twentieth century. We should note this particular film this play set in chicago in the nineteen twenties. Merani takes place over the course of a single afternoon recording session where tensions arise between marini and her manager and the sessions producer. Both of whom are white and members of van namely chadwick. Boseman ambitious trumpet player. Levy it's directed by veteran broadway director george c wolfe josh. We alluded this at the top of the show. Maybe coming in thought that this was really going to be the davis show. But i know we were all hoping in what is tragically chadwick boseman last performance that it would be a fitting swan song. Did you think it was. Oh yeah i mean. He's just fantastic in this as she. I think maybe we can agree. Let's let's not spend any time saying who's quote unquote better. I understand instinct. Because point the whole thing is set up as a showdown right these two characters but heads my my like holds court. It's her world. She's built it and he's a bit player in it but he's reaching for more and so they kind of as characters there's a showdown as supreme acting talents. I can see why you might think of it as a showdown but they really both just serve the material. So brilliantly here they. They don't have a lot of scenes together actually when you think back about it. She's mostly in the actual recording studio and levy spends a lot of time downstairs in the rehearsal space with his bandmates. They both just own their individual scenes. Though i mean that's without doubt and bozeman to go back to him you know. I haven't seen everything he's done. Did you see get on up You did it after. He passed actually. Just so i could have that reference point good. Maybe you can speak to this too because for me. There was like a devilish to him. That i had not really seen at least this full force before. Because he's the guy who's i think of bozeman so many performances as being Regally still controlled and levy is a guy. The ambition is just like shooting out of them right and and he's charming. Because of that. I even as he's being insulting the other members in the band to are all great play by colman domingo michael pattinson glenn termine from cooley high. We talked about glen term in back in our blaxploitation marathon. He's great here but levy is rude to them. He's disrespectful so he's not a guy you necessarily like. Except he is clearly talented as a musician and he does have a level of charm but then you also takes a turn where that ambition becomes threatening and we learn more about him realize that he's also you know suffered psychologically and that makes him somewhat dangerous. This was just not only a strong performance from bozeman but one that to me to my experience of him was Doing some different things. Yeah for sure. As well i do think his performances james brown is a touch point or at least one that i was thinking about a little bit as i watched his character levy here but they are very different performances as well. They're very different characters namely there is a charisma to both certainly but it's a different kind of charisma. There's something about his brown. That matches probably appropriately. Who he was in real life. There's a bit of solemness and someone who is more explicitly outwardly. Mean and. I think it's it's interesting watching his take here on levy that you see someone who is constantly insulting those other bandmates that you mentioned and yet it's never as if they really turn on him and start to go back at him or express their hatred or disdain for him there is something likeable of the man right this this character levy and just to go back a little bit in setting up this dichotomy here. The oscar part of it is what it is. The politics of the oscars isn't something. We give much time to here on the show or outside of it. But when i saw a couple of headlines a while back about boseman being put up by the studio for lead actor not supporting not knowing anything at all really about the play. I haven't seen it. I haven't read it or the movie or this character. He's portraying i guess. I immediately got a little bit cynical and wondered if there was some kind of calculation. There there really wasn't about the size or the substance of the role. This being my rains black bottom. I thought well. It's it's viola davis film and maybe those playing someone who's truly more of a supporting character. So why why are they even messing with us. Well that ensemble. You mentioned the entire on samba. there's other characters as well that we could point to. They get their moments and they're really good but this is a two hander. And the way that levy wants to stand on equal artistic ground with ma. Boseman certainly does here. He does have to be incredibly charismatic. As we said there has to be a fire to the performance cockiness a conviction. He's an instigator he. He's not gonna wait for any one or for anything to come to him. He's going to take it and bozeman on those counts naturally delivers but there is josh. As you alluded to so much more depth to the character and the performance. And i i wanna be careful here to not in any way get trade or to try to minimize the loss when he passed but in terms of a swan song that showcases the full range of an actress talents. This for me was really a gift to watch. I think it's his best performance of the ones. I've seen and and it builds on his legacy playing a black man who has all the scars of past and present dominated by racism. And yet he's he's trying to forge a new path singlehandedly. He's not going to accept the world in his place in it as it is but just through sheer determination through willpower and through talent. He's gonna make he's going to make the world he wants and at times it might be misguided and maybe it's not even going to play out the way that he hopes it does but he's going to try to bend the world to him and there are so many important moments in this film and great performance moments but that that monologue he has that that kind of testimony the the story of his mother and father and how he engages with the white man now because of those past experiences. I think it's five minutes long. I went back and watched it today. Josh and there's a only five cuts six. The most really purposeful cuts will talk about that a little bit more wolf in the direction and the approach to kind of the rhythm of the camera work and editing but for the most part the camera is just trained on boseman and largely in close. And there's a line. He has early in the monologue where he's quoting his father. It kinda starts a little bit like he's he's or rating tail and then he says quoting father. Take care of your mama. While i'm gone. And the way boseman says the line gone. It's like all of the breath just comes completely out of him. In that moment it goes from being a story. he's telling to now he's completely reliving. He's back there in that moment that that kind of trail off of of the breath and i watches. I said that five minutes today. And i just sort of had to sit for a while and decompress after. That's the power of the writing. That's the power of the performance. Was eight years old. Would've a gang of white me is coming in my dad house and have to do with my momma. Anyway they want who's living in jefferson county about eight miles outside cheese dad..

"We've seen people dress up for movies before. Would Star Wars for instance like you know. The onset of that sort of creating this new idea of a blockbuster. This is similar. So ways to to that experience with people dress with people dressing up. But there's a cultural aspect and a yearning with this. So you see people dressing up. But what if? You know the next time we do another Black Panther movie people imagine dressing up in general from a general standpoint they've taken the test and like I'm going to wear. What's specific to me I? WanNa, find my own. You know what kind of be there's something in that and I think we even saw career because. People were coming in you know. They will journalists from throughout Asia and they were wearing their own traditional where. is looting us who would like doing the conduct salute. In a lot of times we we try to water down culture when we start talking about diversity. and. We're all the same. That's not really what it's about is about us being able to be to to have identity amongst each other and coexist. And not water things now, and we saw that happening their response to the movie. that. I can now. Show you Michael. Brought so much to a character that are resisted. For years in a comic books but I was reading about all the research you did. You insist on get the accent in they're talking about your ancestry. All the research you did, he said there are pieces of Mandela and there that President Obama made some of possible. What were those additional pieces that you could bring it marvel already have in there. I think I. Think you know the Comic Book. From from the standpoint of. All of the writers have. Peaked from throughout? Africa. So that I guess the better way to answer that is like we saw this as an opportunity it's not just me. It's you know who, th- Carter. I have each. was the production designer. Of Design everybody that was on this movie even hair makeup. They saw this as an opportunity to pull from from all of the things they loved about the continent of Africa. In the world is so It was that if Kinda is. This technologically advanced ancient. Culture. Then, there was a dispersion of of ideas that went out of Laconda. So I could pull from any place because he could have come from of anyway like the older version of that, and so you sort of see that in the tribes that. Each tribe has a different type of. Clothing a different type of hairstyle, a different type of color that they identify with is so. For this. The Jabari tribe with Winston. Each holds a Nigerian exit. So what he's basically saying is you know even though it's not true in my fantasy, the Nigeria, the Nigerian style of speaking came from out of comment that was a tribunal. We'll kind of Silvis like taking this larger world at conditioning it down to smaller atom, and so that was the. Concept. So although some people may say, well, they just choosing arbitrarily from is not that it's a very specific. Yeah no way of of honing down what this thing is. I don't think people realize what Fox went into also places bother watching it so much every detail of seriously. Yeah. On a lighter note..

"Was Somehow industry goes back to where it's you know. It's old forms. Are. So I don't really know why. That is except you know. He's the same thing as made America the stuff that there's racism sexism. All those things that hold us back from progressing part of the movie industry. Movie Industry is made up people. So Luckily, now we have people in place you know. that. Could change some of those things. This this happened not just because of. Plying Kugler and In the cast, it happens because you haven't Kevin Fight. Has. Because you have. You know happens because those people who are. In those positions see see an opportunity and a need to make the industry do something different. So let's see what happens as far as. Other exempts and other people impoverishes you know following that lead in other companies. It's undeniable now though you guys have proven. That it works. What's the message that you think Hollywood gets off the success of Black Panther. Be Creative. Really do which is supposed to do as a as a as an artist. Is Creative. A US. You know all of the culture that we have in this country. Not, just us you know White Culture European culture us you know Latin Latin American culture buying coaches. Use the Asian culture us. You know obviously African African American culture in the Diaspora. Be Creative. What does this movie about you? has there have been a million think pieces written about what it means who it's about who it's addressed to. Think about Black Panther what is it about? It's it's. You. Know ultimately, it's about it's about personal identity. And then in about identity. Within the larger frame within the world you know. My character emerges as the hero in the movie. But the kill mangas characters also very very long. And You're watching this movie through. His eyes seeing Kanda you're you're learning about kind of to a certain degree through his is is so. You know. It also through to child is but I think. You see in that struggle. And what you see in. These different versions of hero. Is. You know my character emerges. Basically, say, this is not only am I going to. Find my place within myself. And Within Watch tradition. But then what does that mean for? The rest of the world am I going to be for the rest of the world? What am I going to give to the rest of the world? In doing that, he has to confront his incest. He has to go friend the wrongs.

"I interviewed a couple of months ago just like this Gal Gadot out wonder woman. And She basically was saying that. It was important to her, but she didn't realize how big the impact would be that she was this woman, a female superhero that people hadn't seen enough of on the screen and the young girls could relate to. Do you sense that plane Black Panther being the kind of superhero that? Young boys and girls had never seen before or seen very, very few far between up on the screen. Well, I have to say that I got. How important it was to a certain extent We've we have had like superheroes after I give credit to. To. Wesley Slash. Robert Townsend Yeah that they. They've existed. I. Think. Seeing the on this stage with this type of backing is part of what it is. And I. Feel like. I knew that it would be a great thing. It's a dig is different because of the resonance of over. The way stories being told. In particular time that's being told in. Like I'm actually getting to see you know of that. I didn't know so again yes and then no. So it's a, it's a movie. That's a hit obviously. But it's a movie we haven't seen much of. Why do you think Hollywood hasn't made this movie. Until two, thousand, eighteen because there I mean. I. Think. Part of it is is you know people do with what they think works and. Feel like that's is lazy in a way. Because, we're supposed supposed to be a creative. This is supposed to be creative medium. And so. I hate to say it that way but I, think there are certain things that people might hate those people have in place. Like. They'll see a movie and say, well, we did the number isn't we can't. It's not gonNA work. You know we're not gonNA make that. We only thing we can put into that type of movie is this. Is. So. I think it hasn't happened because the system is sort of. been set in people's minds a particular way. And always know anytime, people would say to me well. You. Know a movie with Blackley won't work in a nationally. I always said that makes no sense whatsoever because we've seen happen we've seen will smith. You know do numbers nationally you've seen. The success of Diso lasted we've seen these things time and time and time and time again..

"In all the iterations of all different writers have bought those elements. So this just brought an opportunity I think for. Cheryl, Cole Couva and. Disorder. Put all this into one place and you know it just so happens that has happened in that off when you're making this movie. Did you know you were onto something special when you got this group together when he got Ryan in this group of incredible actors and you know African American director executive producer writers, costume designer all the way down the line. Did. You know you're doing something special. I, think we knew. We knew the potential of you know. What the source material was we knew. We. Wanted to work together all of the actors that you. That that, you know deny. WHO PITA? Michael Force where Angela Bassett you know Martin. We all would just like this is going to be this cast. Amazing. And Ryan talked to me about that. The casting you know early on. I was like Oh. This could be you always you always have a Lebron like building building the teen here. You feel that way but you never know how people are GonNA responsible. You know it's. I think the hard part with movies like this is that they're just not not just on the artistic merit quality, which is what I like to focus on more. The judge knowing what the numbers are right so You, you could make a great film in if for some reason people like I really don't want to see a black superhero you know or. I don't want to be. Social Relevance in politics inside my superhero movie then it might not work. So you don't you don't necessarily know how people are going to to respond to it but I knew will be doing something that would matter to. People. It's Crossed the lines of I. Don't there's no boundary age. There's no, there's no there's no gender boundary. There's no own racial boundary across the board people are sort of down I don't even know if there's like A. a political boundary. It's hers a party. It's it's. Sort of. Has Tracing that all of that yeah. You guys have shown though that you could make a good movie and important movie a movie, the message and did successful at the box office. Right? Most experts think you're on your way to a billion dollars as office that crazy thing to hear that number. Is. Some ways. Yeah. It's crazy thing to hear it. But but you know when you go into that, that is sort of. You. Now, that's that's a a mark that people wanna get. And so you say, well, yeah, hope the movie you you go to bed at night you say, well, hold makes a billion dollars that not not it's not really about what the what that number is is it's you know noted that's as a bitch mark of success is so at the.

"It's the podcast where we give you the full interview from our cut down interviews on Sunday today on NBC on Sunday today I'm real because of TV land seven or eight minutes is about twice as much as usually get. But still when you sit down with somebody for an hour or forty five minutes or whatever it is, you know how much great stuff is on the cutting room floor will now it's found its way into the podcast. You get the full Sunday sit down interview on this podcast and today who my guest is the Star of the biggest movie in a long long time Black Panther. Chadwick Bozeman Chadwick Bozeman such a great guy such a smart guy such a thoughtful guy thrust into the spotlight. As this movie Black Panther blew up making more than a billion dollars. Worldwide billion dollars become one of the top ten highest grossing movies of all time. Chadwick probably know him from Jackie Robinson. He played he played Thurgood. Marshall he played James Brown in the movie get on up I actually had interviewed him once before when he was in that movie, He was shooting Jackson Mississippi Mick. Jagger was his executive producer I got to go sit down with Mick Jagger and Chadwick both men. But this was before Chadwick Bozeman had blown up in the Black Panther he is of course, the Black Panther. He does reign over what Kanda and he is my guest on Sunday sit down. Thanks for doing this I. appreciate it. So you are right now writing this crazy tidal wave, we're right in the middle of it right now. What is it like to be on it? I think part of it. You know I'm every step outs ev literally every place I go to experience right now Just last night in Harlem and there was a community screening. And I wasn't I didn't speak inside that screening and watch it. I still haven't it outside of a premier audience, which is usually celebrities right but. I did see to response to it, and it's it's you know is musical. It's not as not which you usually see from from a movie players which you usually see when it's no rockstar. So that's I think all of us have been experiencing throughout this process. You know Niger in in the states in. Korea the response was. Incredible. I hesitate to say it was like the Beatles. So. is is great to see how people have responded with an appreciation. For what was done in in put a lot of work into it? So it's fulfilling. What do you think are people responding to exactly because there have been a lot of superhero movies and they do well in their popular but there's some other dimensions to this. There's it almost feels like a movement. To a lot of people, people, filling theatres, hashtags, popping up what is it about this one? That's different I. Think I think there's a thirst for. These images. So there's a four you know. A black superhero. An African Superhero. There's there's a true to the Ryan Kugler came at this from from a very, very real place for him. He tried he was his search for. His African experience his roots. So you see that in in a character kill monger. I think. As far as character goes, there's a real search for how widely. People are searching for that. You know you know leader that actually care. About the people. And I think you know it's. Sort of Zeitgeist almost. Even in terms of the women's movement. And the strength of the women in the movie so I think it's sort of hits names like I wouldn't even say intentionally. Wit. You know the comic book was..

Think the great thing about Jack was he he wants the mid eighty s he was basically. Kennison making his movies around Laker Games. Yeah. I don't know if they will be ready to do well I would say he shared with somebody else because he hasn't. Way He doesn't shoot. He doesn't try to shoot like three or four movies in a year. You know he's he's like I'm shooting when big movie that. That you know matters to me in arrested time. He can go to legged game. You know he shared with somebody else if it conflicts I don't know when you were at Howard going to bullets games. Definitely not. I HAVE NO MONEY Talking to. Way Cheaper back that. I. You know that traveled into seed. Bullets seem was this. Wouldn't go into our games. Like you know what's going on with the Howard sports ever figured that out. There working on it. WHO's their big rival? I was always how a Hampton right you know who's the WHO's the real issue that's the that's the thing but Hanson's usually good right. Let's not talk about how. I we had we had some property moments last year football You know canyons, brother little brother. yeah. It was play a quarterback. And other than that. I don't really know what I could point to. This is I went to Holy Cross in Massachusetts. It's so easy to be good at basketball. Like I was looking at Gonzaga Yeah it's. It's like basically four scholarships a year right or five whatever right and you just need to make the NCAA's once get some people and then all the sudden I think he'll do that pretty easily you. Well, that's that's something a friend of mine we were talking about how do you build? Like a really good program at HCC you and you're right. It is much easier than football. It's like you have to have a puzzle. Of Crude fifty scholarships. Yeah. It's impossible. Basketball you a couple celebrity boosters I. Think you count yeah. Get a couple of other ones from Howard. Know and you guys just be like, Hey, we're taking this seriously. Are you saying we're going to pay the players know? Better facilities. Better Jim or whatever tape better dressing. Rooms she the players that had table. This is your sports movie. That would if we were, you play an actor tries to save Howard basketball but crosses a couple of months.

"I was like if it's what I think it is yes. I WanNa do it and they were like a coup. We we're GONNA to bring this character into the movie we're doing right now, which is obviously became civil war and. And essentially they would like everybody's here like everybody was on the phone call Fagadu Russo brothers nate more it was like A. WHO's on call and so I was like, okay Yeah. Of course, I do it and I think. I was in Portugal. Maybe. Two weeks later in the actual offer game so but I had to be quiet for a couple of months. It's it's amazing to think I mean like because if you'll get any of the other reading, guys like they all had audition whether it's Downey. Evans hems where they had the fight tooth and nail not didn't fight for you put it out there but it's a pretty cool position to be in the way this went down right I don't. I can't tell you why you went away from me. But. I'm curious because we were talking about sort of like being creatively involved and you had the unique opportunity of being involved in this before director was attached. And like so did that help you kind of like steer really able to kind of steer the direction of the character because you Kinda came on board. So early on, you feel like you like any early notes that you gave to Kevin and company have lasted through the development process yes. Where we are today yes I would I would definitely say so. You know in the thing about it is the character. You know the first of all marvel I think is really smart. And they're going to take any great ideas and and use them and. He the director that they ended up bringing online Koga also really smart, and so we just the collaboration process when when everybody in the room want something to work ego out of the way. In there's a passion for for something awesomely that's you have a great chance of making some of the special. Yeah. So yes, there were certain things that I loved. About the character even before I knew was coming that I had written in the Journal and I love the Black Panther before we started. Can you give me an example of like somebody says? Jesus, there's a like for instance, there's a particular scene. With CIANO WANNA tell. You almost get. y'All. Hours. Hosted it now Guess we'll have time to talk about this morning when it comes out, have you seen a cut of the film? No have you seen I haven't seen a complete now. You feeling good I. Feel Good I. Feel Good. You also feel good about the early reception I, mean, like I in a different way. You wonder woman went through this like where it felt like before it came out like the weight of the world was on this film. This doesn't succeed like this was like, Oh that could be four point five years for another female lead Superhero. One was going to do well, anyway I hear you. But like there was who knows now, I felt like wonder woman was going to do will and an automatic. Thought that there would be other chances because there was also captain marvel. Like I was like they're going to make this work one way or the other because they have to have to do it. I. Didn't I didn't feel that way, but I am glad that it. Was Successful. So what about for for Black Panther? Do you think like? For Bid for whatever reason it doesn't work with audiences the CYBORG, not get greenlee do feel like a weight of that. Yes I that's what I'm saying, I feel the weight of you from from that perspective way more I. Think we walked into. This. Saying we can't fail like, oh my gosh like I. Don't WanNa Miss this up the you'll be the worst thing in the world if we don't get this, right. And I'm not saying it did I don't know what other people felt but I just know obligated and I go as a black man. Be The guy I don't WanNa be yeah I didn't WanNa be the guy that didn't didn't. You know didn't do it. Well, you ready to play this character for another decade of your life for you like. Shit. Sure. I I haven't I haven't saw live away timour films but but you know I, WanNa I, WanNa play it as long as I shit play and. You know I wanted to also play other stuff. I. Want to have that. Still have that flexibility are immoral. Body of work are you done with the Atlanta for vendors three and four? How involved you are in those book? Boy. On your future right to. Question. Has, it been fun to mix it up with this kind of insane cast them of play against the a few different characters. You probably haven't had an opportunity we them. We're talking about Mario. Oh. Man I love everybody. You know what? I'm saying like like. Everybody everybody's is where they are for a reason maybe like that late. I want nobody nobody from our clan. Like. No one. I'm paraphrasing because I you know trying to be clear your. Audience knows better Oh. Down Mentor to. See Somebody. Absolutely nobody did it better? You know what? I'm saying like not just just on screen, but just the way he lives like he's cool. He's a cool person. He says. About you know the things that he believes. He sincerely wants you to do will. Definitely and everybody here's how moving past Marshall and the vendor stuff. You mentioned the script that you've been developing a director attached. When do you think we're GONNA. See you direct opposite was really ambition. Do you think your time to squeeze that into? Yeah I. IT PROBABLY WON'T BE IN. Twenty. Eighteen. But but yeah, maybe twenty, nine, hundred. And Theater. Who knows I mean it's tough when you have all these opportunities and stuff to kind of. Just trying to figure out the time is is the issue is win. I don't know how many conversations I have with with people in there. It's like, let's do something together I'm like, yeah. Let's do it in this like win booked eighteen months years. Champagne problem. Yes exactly. As I said I was looking forward to this because we haven't had a chance to talk at length. And up in a real review work and I think you're your talks eloquently about? The interesting path that you you've been on the and the cool kind of choices you're making I think it's probably inspiring to a lot of young actors out there. That might be listening to this like for me it's the it's the thing of I. Think you should always choose what you love in what you love might not. Have a lot of money attached to it, and that's if you go back to the early part of our conversation which you love, it may not pay that will Certain decisions you need to make for. The sake of of business but other decisions need to remain true to the art because in the end that's what you get known for you getting off of that and that was things do eventually pay Ya all you put in the work man and all successes clearly well-deserved.

"So this is actually like a superhero origin stolley. Store yes. Because because ultimately for those who know who Thurgood? Marshall ends up becoming, you know he he becomes the guy dead. When it's twenty, nine, thirty, two cases in the Supreme Court becomes supreme. Supreme. Court. Justice himself makes laws. And Skin Roberts Board of Education. To. The sit beside each other. But he becomes this person but he's not that person in this story, right? So the origin of this superhero is. How does he? Get to that point that's this movie and I think also you have this man who who has the odds against him a odds of time and space like he's racing across the country to fight injustice in several places. That's a that's a superhero vein. Time and space being your enemy even though you may have the power, you can't save everybody right? So. Also kind of like a superhero in secret like he's kind of like the background, he can't be the front facing exactly hero exactly. So is it has all of those elements so I feel like you know in doing this movie. There's there's even the Western does even like the guy coming into town. To. Literally why they call it Marshall He's the guy coming in and it's time to implement justice. You only works alone. He doesn't work with WANNA work with this guy. So that's So the weird thing about it is when I read all that and you and I realized what this is actually his real story you know you absolutely get the history like it's it's crazy that it is true. It is crazy that that he actually did have this crazy that he was that charismatic and his crazy that he actually tried those number of cases but you get the sense of what he's going to become and the history like this one little story to tell about Howard in in the film as I'm meeting Sandwich that you know I tell the story about how he you know. sued the University of Maryland I went to Howard and how wasn't a good school and ends up becoming a great law school. That history is sort of told in sort of like in passing away and you don't get bogged down in it. In this movie the. If there is some commonality in some of these characters you played early in your film career. A bunch of icons whether it's comic. Book. Heroes literally or figuratively these these real life kind of champions of justice and Change and arts. Is there a desire for you to be like the Nevis she like? Less heroic person I mean. Because I mean it's great to play the hero blatant with the play, these icons but. Wouldn't it be nice to play something with less like? Import attached yes. Yes. Absolutely. You know not to say that I don't want to want this to continue but but you want to have variety you know what I'm saying you WanNa you WanNa you WanNa beat everyday man you know and so. The truth is like you know that's what I was looking for when this came you know I I don't want to say i. that's what I was looking for when. I was definitely we look for black to go. But You know I was looking for that every day modern guy that you you know and and those scripts have have common and I've agreed to them and they've they've fallen apart by. So it's not like I haven't tried. It's easier to green light the bigger stories anyway. So What when was the first conversation about Black Panther can you give me a little bit of the time line now? Current like what I'm reading it seems like it's about three years ago that sound about right. I don't even know we eat our. No with today is so you talking about going back years? Like I'm curious. About is how long? How much time? Are we talking before that official big announcement that you guys on the press I'm GonNa look over here. 'CAUSE I may get some help I was on the press tour for get on up. So I don't know what year that. It's like. Where I was GonNa Presto Oh forget on up over like we were I was in Zurich. and. I actually? Didn't have international calling on my phone. And on that day I heard a voice say international culinary phone call your mom right now like she 'cause you know you can't get your mama use skype or in it. Wasn't working. So I got international call my mom and that night my agent call me while out or else. I wouldn't have gotten this phone call if I hadn't done that called me where we out any any said, hey you. Get on the phone with marvel. And in In like fifteen minutes and I was like I'm walking on a red carpet he's like get off the red carpet you have this phone call. So it happened this is probably like. I, want to say it was September October helped me Like it was it was like two or three months before it was announced and it was that was that like literally it was that an offer or like would you be open to this or because you never auditioned right you've never had to do the screening. It was just like we heard you interested you were interested in this role I think you know what it is. You know marvel this funny I. Think you know what it is make me say it out loud. Don't make me..

"It also helps the projects that the you know about to help surprises that I'm that I'm that's why I have a producing credit and Omarosa, is because I actually act like producer on the film I care about it on that level. You know I'm giving notes on the script. Because we know some actors get that credit. It's not necessarily. Not, necessarily doing that. You know I will go shake hands and kiss babies so Yeah. So For me, you know I, it's not like I'm just I just had the credit I have credit because I deserve it and feel like the the those other tools that I have as a writer as director come into play when I play League if I plan the Lee. Thinking about the whole film. In a similar way as the director of the producer. I'm concerned not just about mark character. I'm concerned about how to character fits in with all these other characters in whether this person's world robes, right? You know. So you know for me is always the big picture whether or not I have. The producing credit or whatever it is. It's interesting because you know that I quote of a big film forty, two playing Jackie Robinson I am not exactly the same way but you know I've talked to I've had the privilege talking Harrison Ford in the past and I, know enough about him and the way he talks about his approach to filmmaking and he talks about story he talks about sort of being a cog in that wheel and and. In some similar ways to what you're talking about in that like, yeah he's got a job to do, but he's not just onset just thinking about his job the deal by Harrison Ford is you know At the end of the day I. Never forget this at the end of one of our days we were on the baseball field and they were like, this is the Martini Harrison Ford piece up a broom. And Star sweeping. while. He did it more than once he didn't we're outside didn't answer. Ironic. Sweden. As like I'm going to help clean up the disease and I was like what? Now like where's the Dustpan I gotta do something. I gotTA do. You know what I'm saying he's he's blue-collar say he's not. He's not just sitting around waiting on people. To look after him, I mean he will do that too. But. Yeah, he picked up the broom. It's interesting because that film if you'll get your credits. Taking up of the TV stuff that you don't here in there before then. Film was you really hadn't done that much prior to forty two you kind of again talking about this kind of strange circuitous Qaeda's path. This leapfrog leading man roles bike without. Having to supporting parts in film So I'm just curious. Did. You feel like it was jumper did you feel again you weren't like twenty two years old you live the life you've been you've bid living living this very artistically culturally rich life in the theater. So did it feel like Oh shit I'm out of my element or Shit I'm ready for this. This is what I prepared. Yeah. If feel like I was ready for it, you know you know for me. I had been preparing for this all that time and. So it wasn't. It wasn't like Oh, my Gosh I'm not ready to play a lead role I was like was if I gotta do it. You know I have to do it now and I've been you know if I, if I use the skills that I have I'm ready to do this and I've done it on stage which I think is you know sometimes harder. So you know it wasn't like Gosh. This is different stage or in and you know I have the benefit of them yelling cut and say I want WanNa do it again like that's that's a luxury luxury. It seems like you like many performance probably get off on sort of like the physical challenges of roles if you look at some of these kind of early leading roles like. Some commonality beyond the fact that you played a bunch of people, of course, is the fact that. Jackie Robinson Get on up the. Black. Panther, these are all roles where you have. The physicality is a huge part of the of the role. Is that fair to say that that's like a key for you to kind of find your character Is. The weird thing is that I would say that I always start really really small and internal. it always starts more more like a like a a whisper more like meditation more like stillness than anything because I feel like I don't WanNa. I don't WanNa pull things that don't belong. into this new space into this new journey. And I may have tendencies that that I'm bringing into it. So it's important to like so to get to a ground zero. Start that makes you don't want to make the big choices or gone, right Down the wrong path. So it actually to me, the more important part is the internal part and I think from that, you begin to see a whole lot of different dynamics. Because you're still you know so. The physicality of like there's obviously the obviously you need a physicality for all these roles in maybe not so much for Marshall but there is a physicality to just swagger there. So I. To Me I. Think it's more so than the movement is the changing like changing will, what does he look like? You know what is how change my body? To look like this person and that person because I've had to play these roles You know trying to find some some kind of. In physical ends up happening. But I, don't think it's the place star or you're trying to find like the overlap in terms of who you are and who the person is whether that's like because I know you've talked about how one of the things to get over for you and taking this role was look like him. And that's a big. That's something that's something to. Get over psychologically I guess right and make sure that everybody in the family whatever is on board yet like for you know the overlaps are always going to happen. There's always going to be some some things that are the same and you don't have to focus on those things as much. You do DD knowledge them so you don't like leave them out. So in this case, you know he he went to, we walk some of the same hallways even though it was a different time period, you know he went to how university Grad graduated from there. I would say how university. So there's a certain understanding about about what that means like because you're taught about the past that Howard. So I get you know, are we get a little bit of? Thurgood Marshall. From being there also, he spent time in New York, Smithtown Harlem, and even though it's a different time periods of renaissance, you know New York is always going to be sort of a taste maker when it comes to the rest of the world. So you have this guy going into small towns or southern towns towns in the north he's from New York and people are GonNa look at him with he's one of those New Yorkers but he's also a taste maker. He's also a person not only coming they're trying to bring. A certain brand of justice that exist throughout the country but he's bringing a certain style. You know a certain way of doing things. Are we talking you know? There's their stories of of people. Coming into town to see Thurgood Marshall try a case because it had it the cavity to it. So it does back to the physicality does end up being a thing of you know presence you know did you Those. Don't know a little bit about this film in particular. You know it's not like the cradle-to-grave by open right which is which is frankly. Tough to do you know that better than anybody but like this one is interesting take resonable huddling by the way is the director. That's an interesting filmmaker when I heard that name associated with this I was like, okay, this is GonNa be interesting. And it's as much a courtroom drama. Thriller Political. Of a courtroom thriller as as it is a bio-pic Do you feel like that. That informs like that. You still get across kind of like the life of this man even though it's a finite period of time. Yes. Yes. Would the thing about it is you know you because you since you brought up. Reggie. This movie is original. Huddle has written Black Panther. Yeah. You know he's been other comedies last new comic books coming out right now. So, he has that Giambra, you know always sort of lingering in his work you know the idea of of that Superhero..

"Absorb, but it's interesting because for those that don't like look at your full body work and kind of like look at the time line you know you have a very atypical trajectory. As you well know it's like in this kind of youth obsessed culture where it's like the twenty two year old and he's going to be the next big star. It took you a bit to kind of like the leap. And I didn't want it. That was the thing about it. It was like. `I truth I truthfully was more interested at one point in time I think in writing and and you know I was you know reading books I I didn't I didn't necessarily want I didn't I didn't want that I. I was like Kinda Crazy. What was the what was it that about you're saying like kind of like I? Mean did you feel like you were better than? Not In a negative way I'm not trying to like make you sound like holier now but like when you're just not into kind of sort of like the opportunities that were presenting themselves or it was at. I think you can be is weird to say this but. You can you can not define you know I'm not saying it was a good thing at all but you can. Exist. In a place where you have a certain amount of Have a certain amount of success amongst your peers and you have a certain amount of success amongst amongst artists around you. And you view them as being as good as anybody that you see on TV, right? Famous, even that famous. Like you know you know I did anybody to mess with anybody from our clan you know what I'm saying. Like that's how you come up against anybody that's how you feel and so. You know this is a thing of. I remember there was a producer woody cage on you I. Love. Who is over new Federal Theatre off Broadway theatre a he kept telling me man, you gotta go out to La man he was pushing me to go out to idea when his plays he's going to do the play out and I was like, no, you know with Hollywood I don't feel like so I had this sort of misconception about what it what Hollywood. And then I also had another point when I did want to go. A set of eight is. Who I really didn't believe in me and they kept saying you're going to go out there you're going to get swallowed up. So they produced a sort of fear of what it was and I think sometimes you can be in in New York or Chicago or Chicago is also really good hub. You can do theater theater and this quite a bit of TV film to. But you can be in a certain hub and have. You know a success or following people know who you are casting directors know who you are. But if if you don't go out to La you know and you get the whole scope of the thing the you don't understand what you're actually missing. So and there's also the kind of like if you've never go out to la and go for it, you can kind of always be the guy be like why don't even bother with that like you'll never know right or you were exactly enough or walking enough or whatever because you nipped in the bud before you even had a chance. Yeah. So there's there's a certain amount of. The business. Of the industry that takes place you know a lot of movies don't get shot in La anymore a lot more stuff shot in Atlanta anywhere. And so but but the decisions are made there and so I, you know was competing I was actually competing with people who are in front of the people who are making decisions getting close even though I never met those people right so but it's a different thing when you walk in the room and you've you come there I always say if you go to La with New York Hustle. Nothing. Stop you. So once I showed up, it was like, oh Shit. We Got New York Hustle where. This might. Did. What was the life that you were envisioning for yourself long-term here like you were getting by you're you`re Living and you were in this sounds like really great cultural and artistic community where you inspired. So were you content to like like this is the next fifty years of my life doing bit parts here and they're doing theater here and they're teaching where I had to and and this is. I don't think I don't think I knew I mean I had pleased that were being done throughout the country that I. and. I had you know I was doing you know rolls on like guest starring roles and recurring roles. More. So guest our. Guest. I rose on TV? Getting closer things here, and there was theater I was doing some theater to off Broadway like acting in theatre off Broadway and directing things here. No. So I didn't really know like all of those roads could lead to a substantial success. You know any one of them and it wasn't like I was far away from any of them, right? So it was just it. was just a head down and at some point. Yeah. All of those things I was doing very well well, if I saw somebody and they told me my exact story and say, well, what do I do? I'd be doing great going just keep going and so it was it was just a thing of you know ahead to be the right thing to tip me over. And was was writing and directing and acting. was doing all three of those things. Equally creatively satisfying inspiring was, was it sort of cheese or was this? Was it? Yes the answer's Yes. It was equally like like in other words did they're all different? You know I still you know I have a film right now that we`re That I've written that we have a director on the We're working on in a studio. So. The process of sitting in the room, and in this will have a writing part if I have. If you have a good writing parties, even better you know but sitting in a room I you you don't have. To collaborate with, you know one hundred people. In you are sort of living in this like once you start writing something. Yeah. The weird thing that happens once you start putting the pnt paper or typing it up. You Begin to walk around sort of in your own story days begin to come to you and that that process is a very. Liberating and. Spiritual the and and it's exhilarating they you get to create this world. With with your words it is I. Love that process. Just as much as I love acting well, it was going to say like when things started on the acting fronts, really gain momentum. And I guess forty two was pretty is the breakthrough. Suddenly jump starts at all. It seems like you didn't waste much time in terms of yeah. The acting is has now kicked up to another level, but you're a producer for instance on Marshall. Right. So and you talk about this other film you're developing like you're not like. compartmentalizing and saying like, okay, now is the time just to act all there's a long life we'll get to that other stuff when I get to it, you're you're using the capital you've kind of like garden from being cast in a marvel movie, etc yet to help these other projects into fuel these other creative pursuit..

"Normal human being a or we can do it as. As dogs. Earl comes with the only official dog. Avocados men's. Just. August. This is that was a great. Dane. Dogs. It's been a long store clearly you've lost. Love. Musab. They're singing their dog noises. It's good to see man we've never really talked at length. So this is a treat for me at a big fan of your work for a while and congratulations on this latest one Marshall's film talk about but thank you so much. We have some time to talk about a lot of things so. One thing I want to get started with if that's cool is talking about New York because I didn't realize you had like a history here. For A bit. Yes. The New York. Still still. Home I still have family here. My brother lives here. Cousins here got children here like yes. Some greatest teachers here. So yeah. New. York is definitely a home for me. It's funny because I found like a surprising point of a connection that we have in that like my mom runs a nonprofit theater organization here in. Schamberg and I didn't realize that you did some teaching there for a number of Utah some students at Schaumburg for for a number years taught theater todd really was like you know con- studies During a program that they have on a weekend sometimes if they meet. Every once in a while they do stuff during the week but mostly this weekend. So where were you at in your life when you came to New York give me a sense of sort of where that fit into the. Story oh I I was struggling artists. The best way to put it is you know I was I was doing everything I could artistically there's still sort of staying. Including music stuff like we you know it was I was doing hip hop theatre Which is, basically we take the you know the elements of hip hop and put it in a story so. The. Dialogue would sometimes be Rhyming Gore I wrote a script. It was almost like you. You're looking at Shakespeare, but is he a pop slang? Is that partially to make it like? Accessible for different audiences, it was just a it was just the culture we live in I think we you know we started doing in DC when I was at Howard and it just became a method of expression. It was it was like an offshoot of the underground pop. You know underground hip hop movement and performance poetry movements last dance because we have be boys, we had DJ's to orchestrate it was a whole using different. Way We converse and find that in classical. Wasn't like. Cool for the kids. It was. It was just that was the way we told stories than in the hip hop theatre festival existed. Still exists I haven't I haven't seen in a of years, but it existed in in New York for years various different types of performance different ways of doing hip hop theater. So now you see Hamilton that is like the ultimate exit. Commercial version of what we were doing but. Yet. Been there done pretty much. Pretty was pretty worse. We know it's not not taking anything away from the, but it is literally by doing way before. So you know I was doing a little bit of everything I was doing Shakespeare I was directing was writing was doing every little reading anybody anybody ad. So I just wanted to be an artist you know making living like were you able to get a world are worse to some degree, but also teaching at this hour? You know everybody knows what that teaching artis thing was. But yeah, it was a gradual thing I, think you. When you walk that road and you're truly I'll have a lot of people that will. Tell me. They want to be active and they're in la or they're in. Atlanta you know and they're like, they're like, you know, how do you do it like? They have no idea. Because they think it's all about showing up in front of the camera. They have no idea how many rooms asset in with other performance and I just act as performers and we just wanted to create you know we weren't even thinking about what we're going to get paid. That was an afterthought. And so I tell people just like you have to love what you do I. Yeah and and you know all the other stuff will come saying don't be business-minded but you know I can always tell with somebody really loves it or they just they just want the outcome review and you have besides stuff like teaching Schaumburg did you have like kind of like do you have to wait tables and you have to do any of that kind of stuff I never I never gigs yeah. I. Never I just did enough stuff that was. It was it was like it was like I want to stay in the midst of this teaching learning if I'm if I'm everything fed into. If I if I'm doing voice overs, a lot of voiceovers I didn't really I didn't do. On camera commercials. Because I was like I don't really want to I don't know if that's my you know this is sort of an elitist feeling. I don't WanNa do on camera commercials I just WanNa be like that. Robert Deniro type. No. I don't. I don't want to be the seven lead on gossip girl. I voice over the light you know I pay actually that actually. Pay You. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you the best fast food. Ones Come. To mind. I don't remember lie you flushless I. Don't remember I don't remember. Yeah. Have those. So I mean is a good word. because. That's kind of like the big picture thing that really struck me when I was reading up on you that people they even do. An audio book I did a audio book they got nominated for a grammy. Or?

"As he made some of the most. Resonant films in recent memory and indelible performances. This is a this a loss that has hit everybody I feel like tremendously hard. These are hard times. This has been a should ear. And this is a in in a crappy year this is one of the. One of the worst things that we've had to to deal with because Chadwick Bozeman was in his prime he was just getting started and he was not only a fantastic actor but. A good man, a truly a guy that had his priorities right and wanted to contribute and was in it for the right reasons and was delivering Just. Great work after great work and. No one can. Can say that there wasn't. There wasn't gonNA be decades more of exceptional work to come the this loss really hit me hard as it as it's hit many people hard and I felt compelled to to go back this morning. I listen to my conversation which had wick back in late twenty seventeen. He came into my office he was promoting Marshall. the Bio pic replayed Thurgood Marshall and we had a we had a chat and I had an it since then and it it. It's It hit me again really hard as as very sad but also really inspiring Shattuck was just very intelligent Inspiring figure I. Don't know how else to put it he his trajectory. in becoming an actor becoming a jain normal movie star was unusual. He became a movie star in his basically in his mid thirties with virtually no film roles. Prior, he'd been living a life as a teacher and a bit player and actor in TV, and and in theater he wanted to be a writer. He wanted to be a director. He wanted to be part of the creative process but didn't necessarily think he wanted to be the guy in front and. At. Certain points. circumstances. Changed and he became that guy and he It's shocking to think how close we came to not even having him as an actor and movie star that you know if things had gone a different way, he could have lived a relatively anonymous life in the theater. And as a teacher and that would have been a life well lived with the fact that he. Delivered on such a big stage is to all our benefit and You know I can't. I'm not gonNA pretend that Chadwick was like a close friend but he wasn't acquaintance. He was somebody that I I got to know a fair amount in recent years and he just had a an amazing. Combination. Of Humility. And power if that makes any sense. He knew he was talented but he also knew there was a weight on his shoulders. And he knew that it was an opportunity that he had to make the most of and he did. He was writing he was producing. He was starring as these seminal influential figures doing them justice time and time again So I I don't know what else to say except I wanted to share this conversation because it is inspiring to hear his words to hear how vibrant he was in here Just what a good guy he was and what a smart guy he was and what a talented man he was. I'm so sorry for. The loss for all of us and especially to his family and I hope this is some kind of small snapshot and tribute to Chadwick because. He always treated very decently and was very kind and sweet with me and I I really really enjoyed our our time together and I will. I'll miss him on a personal level and I'll miss him on a professional level So This is my conversation which adipose men from Two thousand seventeen Rest in Peace Charter Bozeman. Conversation as to.
