Chadwick Boseman’s Contribution In His Success
Chadwick Boseman meant and still means a lot of things to people from all walks of life. For some, The Black Panther actor is a source of inspiration, and for others, he is a superhero they can relate to.
For Morris, however, he was a mentor and a brother. Boseman helped him whenever he needed support.
During an interview with GQ in September 2020, just days after Boseman passed away, Morris told his story about how Boseman helped him in his acting career and life in general.
When asked if he knew Boseman personally, Morris said he knew him from around when he moved to New York.
I definitely knew him personally. I want to say we've known each other since 2005, maybe 2006. Right around the time I moved to New York or a little bit before that. We became buddies through another actor, Ramses Jimenez.
He also revealed that Boseman coached him for his auditions for New Girl, a project that defined and set his career tone. The late actor also helped him through some tough times when he moved to LA. He brought one of his friends to live with Morris to have an easier time paying rent.
Morris probably got the best acting advice of his life from Boseman when he was auditioning for Selma. He recalls Boseman as being an intense guy when it came to the craft of acting.
He was such an intense guy when it came to his craft. I remember having an audition for Selma, and I asked him to coach me on it. And he came by, and at the time, I was trying to infuse humor in moments that I didn't need to infuse humor into.
And when he used humor, Boseman advised him to quit joking if he really wanted to get the role and work harder. He taught him to take his auditions seriously and move forward with an intense work ethic.
