A native of South Carolina, CHADWICK BOSEMAN (James Brown) graduated from Howard University before attending the British American Drama Academy in Oxford, U.K., after which he began his career as a playwright, director and actor.

Boseman began his career in the theater world, writing such plays as Deep Azure, which was nominated for a 2006 Jeff Award for Best New Play and is published in the Hip-Hop Theater anthology "Say Word!"; and Hieroglyphic Graffiti, which was produced at the National Black Theatre Festival and the Hip-Hop Theater Festival. He co-authored Rhyme Deferred, which appeared in the Hip-Hop Theater anthology "The Fire This Time."

Boseman's theater directing credits include Dutchman, Wine in the Wilderness, Indian Summer, Spear in the Sun, The Colored Museum and Six Hits. For the screen, he wrote, directed and executive produced the short film Blood Over a Broken Pawn. His theater acting credits include Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Breathe, Learning Curve, Willy's Cut and Shine, Rhyme Deferred, Bootleg Blues, Zooman and the Sign and Urban Transition: Loose Blossoms, for which he won an AUDELCO award for Best Supporting Actor.

Boseman made his feature film debut portraying football great Floyd Little in Gary Fleder's drama The Express. More recently, he starred in the independent psychological postwar drama The Kill Hole, and received strong reviews for his portrayal of American icon Jackie Robinson in Brian Helgeland's 42, opposite Harrison Ford. The film tells the story of Robinson's history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers under the guidance of team executive Branch Rickey (Ford). Boseman was most recently seen opposite Kevin Costner in Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment's Draft Day.

Boseman will next be seen in Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment's period epic Gods of Egypt, for director Alex Proyas. The action-adventure, in which he portrays Thoth, the god of wisdom, is set for release in February 2016.
