Chadwick Boseman pushes the boundariesThe actor has portrayed trailblazing characters from both history and fiction. He doesn't plan it that way.
[MUSIC] I haven't planned anything. It's a blessing to be in this position. If I had only played Jacky Robinson I would be happy about that. What you gonna do if one of these pitchers throw it through your head? I'll duck. Jackie Robinson's like my gosh moment. Black panther's like my gosh, I get to play that. I think James Brown and Thurgood Marshall were two things that I didn't see as clearly when they first came to me. Neither of them have been telling us the truth. When I was approached to do those two I said no initially. So I can't take credit for it because I couldn't see that path. You know, I had to have some Some people that I respect push me beyond my boundaries. And I think that's what it's about. It's not about the characters as much as it's about, you're gonna put as much as you put into doing the world. And- And take away from the other parts of your life. You want to spend that time doing things that means something. [MUSIC]
