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.
Keith is best known for his critically acclaimed role as “C.C. White” in the Academy Award winning feature film, Dreamgirls. In which he was directed by Bill Condon, and starred alongside Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy and Anika Noni Rose. In the musical, Robinson’s big solo, “Patience,” which he also performed live at the Academy Awards, earned him an Oscar nomination.
On the acting side, Robinson followed Dreamgirls with This Christmas, co-starring Chris Brown, Idris Elba, Loretta Devine and Delroy Lindo. He then went on to star in Dear John opposite Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried. Roles in 35 and Ticking, starring alongside Kevin Hart, and Hopelessly in June soon followed. Next, Robinson began shooting Dysfunctional Friends.
Like many, he’s taken a behind-the-scenes approach to creating music. Robinson founded his own scoring company, Theme Song. Since its establishment, Theme Song has scored music for movies like Blade 3, Fat Albert, and 35 and Ticking, in which he also starred. Most recently, the budding company scored Divorce Invitation (2012) also starring Robinson alongside Jonathan Bennett, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Nadia Bjorlin.
Keith’s upcoming releases include CRU, an emotionally intense film in which he stars alongside Harry Lennix, Richard T. Jones, and Alison Eastwood. Four Seasons, a romantic comedy starring with Robin Givens and Christian Keyes, and most recently, Universal’s James Brown biopic Get On Up, with Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Dan Aykroyd. In conjunction with the release of Get On Up, Keith will also be releasing his new album, Love Episodic, both due in 2014.
Singer/songwriter/actor Keith Robinson was born in Kentucky, where he discovered his love of the arts at a young age. Singing took center stage in high school in Augusta, Georgia, and he was signed to a contract while attending the University of Georgia. Robinson was picked up by Motown Records and went on to perform with several top artists.
To put his career in high gear, Robinson decided to make a transition and move out to Los Angeles to further his singing career and try his hand at his other love, acting. His very first audition landed him the role of Joel Rawlings, the Green Ranger.
Keith was featured in the role of C.C. White, in the Hit "Dreamgirls", opposite Jamie Foxx, Beyoncé Knowles, Eddie Murphy, Danny Glover, Jennifer Hudson, Anika Noni Rose, and Sharon Leal in Bill Condon's Academy Award-winning film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical. His most recent feature film is the holiday-themed "This Christmas", where he is part of an ensemble cast that also includes Loretta Devine, Delroy Lindo, Idris Elba, Regina King and Chris Brown.
And August 1, 2014, Keith will be apart of the long awaited James Brown biopic, "Get On Up". Keith will be playing the role of Baby Roy, an original member of James Brown’s band. When Robinson is not on set, he's in the recording studio working on his album and music for major motion pictures and television.

There are more than 200 different types of cancer and it can develop in any of 60 different organs within the body. There are three main types of mesothelioma; a rare cancer of the protective lining that covers many of the internal organs of the body. It's most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos.
During her childhood Heather von St. James did what many little girls do. She wore her daddy's jacket around the house when he came home from work -- never suspecting there was harm coming to her via that playful act.
In November 2005 at the age of 36, just three months after celebrating the birth of her daughter, she was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma. The delicately risky surgery to save her life took her more than 1400 miles away from the life she'd just brought into the world. The surgery performed at Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital consisted of removing the lining of the lung, an entire lung, half of her diaphragm, the lining of her heart and her sixth rib. That marked the beginning of her journey to survive and her battle with what she calls "scanxiety." Motherhood and marriage interspersed with doses of humor and faith have strengthened her when anxiety and the fear of recurrence hit home.
She's now celebrating her 8th year as a survivor. Her mission in life is to help others with mesothelioma around the globe. Her stories of awareness and hope appear in places like The Huffington Post, Moms N' Charge, Everyday Health, interviews and hope-filled awareness blogs. When she's not busy speaking, advocating, and inspiring others, she's spends her time with husband/best-friend Cameron, volunteering at her daughter's school, planting flowers, and enjoying all things whimsical. Meet Heather von St. James - A Case for Hope!
