James Brown is dead on 25th december as everybody know (Rip James) and they are already making a movie about his life. It was a great artist that inspirede famous star like Michael Jackson and Mick Jagger. I heard they are making a cast to choose the protagonist that will play the James Brown role in the movie. Spike Lee is directing the movie and he have to choose famous star like Prince, Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes to play the role of James. Who Do you think can play better the role of James Brown? In my opinion Eddie Murphy could fit well because he's funny as James and his a great actor.

I'd like to see that movie. I don't know about Eddie Murphy, though... he's got the wrong body type, for one thing--JB was a husky, barrel-chested guy. I could see Murphy doing JB's vocals, though, he's good at impersonating voices. I'm really lucky to have seen JB live, back in 1985--and I thought he was kind of on the 'old' side back then! Little did I know he'd still be doing his 'Star Time' 20 years later!

Eddie Murphy hasn't the right body, but they special effect could do the work;) Do you remember the movie "The Nutty Professor"? In that Eddie Murphy do lots of characters, the fat doctor, the grandmother and so on! Special effects can transform him well in James Brown I though.

Whoever they choose would have to be a great actor and also be a great entertainer. It would be a difficult role and I really can't think of anyone right now. It might be better to get someone less well known otherwise it might just look like a sketch show send up.
