We imagine filling the fictional shoes of the late James Brown is quite the challenge, but Chadwick Boseman makes it look like a cake walk. The 42 star is practically unrecognizable alongside Viola Davis, Jill Scott, Tika Sumpter and more in the first official trailer for Get On Up.

The highly anticipated biopic follows the tumultuous and groundbreaking journey of the “Godfather of Soul,” from his humble beginnings to his controversial moments in the spotlight.
