    Musicians need not apply.

    Actor Chadwick Boseman, who got his biopic on when he portrayed baseball legend Jackie Robinson in this year's 42, will get his biopic on again, as he has been cast as iconic singer James Brown in a long-gestating biopic.

    Uh, he feels good!

    Mick Jagger is serving as a producer on the film, which will chronicle Brown's life in extreme poverty during his childhood to his ascent as the Godfather of Soul.

    Do you think this is a good choice to play James Brown? If not, who would you like to see fill those Buster Browns? Perhaps Charles Bradley, who learned his amazing moves in a JB cover band?
