Before he was announced as Marvel's Black Panther back in October, Chadwick Boseman took on the iconic role of James Brown in the Universal Pictures biopic Get on Up. With the drama currently available on Blu-ray and DVD, we have an exclusive deleted scene, where Chadwick Boseman gets some bad news from the parole board. Although he obviously went on to become an influential musician, James Brown wanted to become a mechanic after his release from prison. As you can see in this scene, the terms of his parole did not make that possible.
In his follow-up to the four-time Academy Award-nominated blockbuster The Help, Tate Taylor directs 42's Chadwick Boseman as James Brown in Get on Up. Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves, and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. Boseman is joined in the drama by Nelsan Ellis, Dan Aykroyd, Viola Davis, Craig Robinson, Octavia Spencer, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter and Jill Scott.
Our exclusive deleted scene is just a small part of the bonus features, which also include Deleted/Extended/Alternate Scenes, Full Song Performances, Extended Song Performances, Long Journey to the Screen featurette, Chadwick Boseman: Meet Mr. James Brown featurette, The Get on Up Family featurette, On Stage with the Hardest Working Man featurette, The Founding Father of Funk featurette, Tate Taylor's Master Class featurette and Feature Commentary with Director/Producer Tate Taylor.
