Actor Keith Robinson Cast In James Brown Biopic, ‘Get On Up’
Things really seem to be coming together for the long-awaited James Brown biopic, Get On Up. Just last week we told you that singer-turned-actress Jill Scott has been cast to play The Godfather Of Soul’s wife. We’ve just learned that Dreamgirls actor Keith Robinson has also been added to the all-star cast.
According to Shadow and Act, the 38-year-old actor will be playing the role of Baby Roy an original member of James Brown’s band. Actor Keith Robinson Cast In James Brown Biopic, ‘Get On Up’ Keith will be in the company of some of Hollywood’s most talented actors and actresses. If you recall, 42 actor Chadwick Boseman has been cast to play the role of Brown. The Help actresses Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis have also been cast to play the late singer’s aunt and mother, respectively.
Keith has already taken to Twitter to thank everyone for their support and express his excitement regarding his new role.
Hosted by Candice Frederick, Kimberly Renee, and ReBecca Theodore-Vachon, "Cinema in Noir" covers the latest casting news, reviews, and interviews with the best and brightest talent in film. In the latest edition we discuss the casting of Zendaya in the Lifetime Aaliyah biopic and claims of colorism. We will also countdow our favorite music documentaries. Lastly, we will discuss the upcoming season of True Blood.
What can you say about an actor who has embodied two of the greatest African American figures of the 20th century on the silver screen in as many years—and to critical acclaim? Only that he’s no doubt on his way to following in the footsteps of Denzel Washington and Sidney Poitier. “The choices that you get to make are those heroic, courageous choices that we want to show our kids, that we want to pass down,” Chadwick Boseman tells us of his role in the 2013 Jackie Robinson biopic 42. “You’re not just playin’ a character, you’re playin’ somebody that you'd like to be like.”

Join me as I spend the next hour go over the career of Keith Robinson. As we are on the heels of the James Brown Biopic, "Get On UP!" This Needs To Be Said has the pleasure of spending some time with Actor/Songwriter and most of all Singer. On top of that we get to share our time with him, with you.
You don't want to miss this.
Robinson may be best known for his critically acclaimed role as “C.C. White” in the Academy Award winning feature film, Dreamgirls.
You've seen him in This Christmas, Fat Albert, 35 and Ticking, Dear John...just to name a few.
We may even have something special to share with you about Mr. Robinson that you didn't know. I know I was surprised. I will see if we can share it with you.
“When I step onstage, half the people in the audience know I’m about to sing, and half have no idea that I can.” - Keith Robinson to OurStage.com.

Konichiwa. Ladies and Gents! Welcome to another fantastic sonic voyage courtesy of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse broadcast airing this Saturday at 6pm (EST). Since our comrade in arms, Daryll B. is vacationing, we will conduct another "mixtape-mashup" show focusing on the latest pop, pulp and political news events. Join your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk as their colloquium covers the following issues: the crew at Afronerd Radio Dburt bore witness to the latest Marvel event, The Guardians of the Galaxy (as it seems poised for a 100m weekend boxoffice take); Dburt also checks out the James Brown biopic, Get on Up; a part two discourse on the Stephen A. Smith suspension and his controversial domestic violence rant; Shadow and Act's Sergio Mims ponders why director, Woody Allen "won't hire a Black actor unless the role calls for one" ; Fear of a Black Panel-the Racialicious blog highlights San Diego Comic Con's diversity panels; the NYPD Eric Graner chokehold death case has been ruled a homicide; in Net neutrality news, some civil rights ogranizations are coming forward to support government and corporate control of the cyberwebs (huh?); is a Change.org petition challenging artists and record companies to stop degrading Black people/culture a strong enough tactic? Why not a class action suit? And lastly, a new USATODAY piece puts the focus on a booming tech economy that is allegedly fueling an urban renaissance. The question remains-how can Blacks and Latinos take advantage of this especially if it's occurring within or adjacent to their neighborhoods? Call live at 646-915-9620. And in the inimitable words of (Marvel's) Thor...Speak mortals, Afronerd commands it!
As the title infers, we're a few weeks away from our usual Grindhouse Mashup broadcast, but since we preempted our last show, let's give our audience as much fun, facts and fire as inhumanly (a term Black Bolt can only whisper) possible. So join Dburt, Daryll B. and Capt. Kirk this Saturday at 6pm to unfurl the following pop/pulp/political topics: the highly anticipated Aaron McGruder Black Jesus project raises the ire of Christian Groups; three cast members from Marvel's Ant-man have left the (ant)"farm" ; the team finally weighs in on the NYPD choke hold death of Eric Garner; waxing on an Esquire blog piece entitled Are Blacksuperheroes Good for Black People?; Dburt laments the emergence of rapper, Bobby Shmurda and ponders why isn't "innocence" marketed to people of color; New York Knickerbocker, Carmelo Anthony starts a venture capital firm for tech startups; ESPN sports analyst, Stephen A, Smith dared to give a "deconstructed" viewpoint about domestic violence in the wake of the Ray Rice controversy and gets pummeled on twitter; Expendables 3 makes its way online in HD quality, how will this affect the box office returns (100K+ downloads in 24 hours can't be good); San Diego Comic Con revelations and lastly, was the casting call for the upcoming NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton really shocking? Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620. And remember, make yours Afronerd, The Comic Shoppe and The Grindhouse!
