Chadwick Boseman Casted to Play African Samurai.
Chadwick Boseman is adding another historical black figure to his acting resume.
He has played Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson and James Brown and he played them so well, and now he is going in a totally different direction.
Now he will play Yasuke, a slave who was brought to Japan during the 16th century.
Yasuke was the first African Samurai to swing a sword.
Chadwick Boseman said, the legend of Yasuke is one of history’s best kept secrets, the only person of non-Asian origin to become a samurai. That’s not just an action movie, that’s a cultural event, an exchange and I am excited to be a part of it.
