*”I wanted to be a part of James Brown’s legacy!” Proclaimed Oscar winner Octavia Spencer. “I wanted to be directed by my best friend (Tate Taylor) on a project, I knew he would slay and he did! And work with Chadwick Boseman. And of course Mick Jagger and Brian Grazer. I feel very blessed to be a part of this.”
In “Get on Up,” the veteran character actress plays Aunt Honey, the woman who took in young Brown when he had nowhere else to go.
