U.S. TV star Nick Eversman has been cast as Mick Jagger in the new James Brown biopic, which the Rolling Stones star is producing.
The CSI: Miami, House and The Tomorrow People actor will portray the rocker as a much younger man in The Help director Tate Taylor’s new film, titled Get On Up.
According to, Eversman landed the role after moving like Jagger on his audition tape. The actor offered up a side-by-side comparison of his performance to archival footage of the Rolling Stones frontman.
He joins a cast that includes 42 star Chadwick Boseman as Brown, Dan Aykroyd and Taylor’s The Help stars Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer.
