When it comes to portraying iconic figures, Chadwick Boseman is truly in a league of his own. The actor has taken on James Brown (Get On Up), Jackie Robinson (42) and will be the lead in Marvel's Black Panther. Now, Boseman looks to deliver another great performance as America's first African American judge on the Supreme Court, Thurgood Marshall.
The movie, which is named Marshall, takes us on a journey through one of Thurgood Marshall's early iconic case, where he is has been called upon by the NAACP to represent Joseph Spell. Played by This Is Us actor Sterling K. Brown, Spell, a chauffeur, is accused of sexually assaulting a socialite (Kate Hudson).
