We were all saddened last year with the passing of Chadwick Boseman, the actor best known for playing Black Panther. His honorable demeanor surprisingly made T’Challa a household name.
Boseman’s breakout role was as Jackie Robinson, the first African American athlete in major league sports, in the film 42.
This would lead to a string of roles where Boseman played historical African American figures. He played James Brown in Get On Up and Thurgood Marshall in Marshall.
What saddened me the most is that I was looking forward to the films he would be making after the superhero films. He was good in 21 Bridges and his small role in Da 5 Bloods, but I think I speak for everyone that we wanted to see more. At the very least, another turn as T’Challa.
Today’s prompt: what actors do you wish we got to see more of?
Next week: the fourth wall
