Our Top 10 Picks to Star in New James Brown Biopic


News broke this week that the long-awaited James Brown biopic is finally coming out. "The Hardest Working Man in Show Business" was directly involved in the film until his 2006 death threw things into limbo due to legal troubles.

A big thanks to none other than Mick Jagger who will be producing the film with Brian Grazer (8 Mile, Katy Perry: Part Of Me). A new director is also on board, Tate Taylor (The Help), replacing initial director Spike Lee.

Casting has started for the film. But in case Mick and co. need some suggestions, we've compiled a list of our top picks for who could pull off the role of Soul Brother No. 1.
