RIP Chadwick Boseman (1976-2020)


Recommended Posts

This probably deserves its own thread but the AP is reporting that Chadwick Boseman has died of colon cancer he's been fighting for four years.

I'm stunned as I never heard a thing about his cancer. Fucking hell. 

Chadwick was an accomplished actor but he was so damn great as Black Panther. He just shined throughout that whole movie and I'll always love him for what he brought to that role. Seeing that was my favorite time in the theater as it was just an incredibly special experience. RIP, Chadwick.

Sorry, Dolfan. I know you were moving stuff as I typed it in the other thread. Please do what you need to.

An underrated role of his was Vontae Mack in Draft Day because, you know, the movie is not good (Yet I watch it all the time) and Boseman’s role is super underwritten and developed but he brings such charisma and authenticity to the role that you wind up cheering for him by the end.  RIP

We should all appreciate how incredible a talent he was.   

 

Chadwick Boseman forever.

An interesting note that Boseman paased away as Major League Baseball celebrates Jackie Robinson Day. Boseman played Robinson in 42. MLB normally celebrates Jackie Robinson Day on April 15th, which was obviously delayed due to COVID-19.

He was clearly struggling with something because @RIPPAand I had a little back and forth many months back about his strange weight loss in the Upcoming Movies thread. Plus, he trended for a whole day on Twitter not too long ago with people making jokes about his frail appearance, which obviously is horrible in hindsight. I was holding out hope nothing was seriously wrong with him.

Hey, I lost one of my good childhood friends to cancer a couple years ago and nobody knew he had it until he passed. It's one of those things. Just a motherfucker.

This is so not important right now, I know, but I had no idea there was a film of Ma Rainey's Black Bottom on the horizon. 

Jesus though... Fuck
