Jeremy Pope Stars as Jean-Michel Basquiat on Broadway, Coming Soon to Big Screen

First-time Golden Globe 2023 nominee Jeremy Pope may currently be seen on Broadway starring as the legendary artist Jean-Michel Basquiat in “The Collaboration. ” This role is Pope’s triumphant return to stage since he made history in 2019 as a two-time Tony nominee in the same season when he was nominated for his performances in both “Choir Boy” by Moonlight co-writer Tarell Alvin McCraney, and “Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Time of The Temptations,” written by Dominique Morisseau.

Black Actors to Watch in 2023

One stars in The Little Mermaid and The Color Purple, two of the most anticipated films this year; another has the title role in the largely untold, true story of a slave son who became a highly regarded composer and violin virtuoso in 18th century France. Of the three others, one will star as a female soldier disguised as a man in a Western; the other will star in Mel Brooks’ long-awaited anthology series; and the last one, but certainly not the least, landed a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe epic.
