The upcoming James Brown biopic has recruited two more stars.
Dan Aykroyd (he of The Blues Brothers and Ghostbusters and the Britney Spears movie fame) has been cast as the Godfather of Soul's agent Ben Bart and Jill Scott (The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency) will play Brown's wife. They will join confirmed cast members Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer.
The film, entitled Get On Up, is to be directed by The Help's Tate Taylor and the relatively unknown Chadwick Boseman will be the lucky actor to fill the music icon's shoes.
