HBO just announced that actor Danny Glover will play the legendary Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall in an upcoming biopic about prize fighter Muhammad Ali.
The movie entitled “Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight” will focus on Ali’s refusal to fight in the Vietnam War and also stars Oscar-winning actor Christopher Plummer as Justice Marshall Harlan and Frank Langella as Chief Justice Warren Burger.
So who will play the coveted role of Muhammad Ali?
According to the movie’s director Stephen Frears, he will use archival footage of Ali instead of an actor. Looks like this Mr. Frears is going to let Muhammad Ali speak for himself?
Who would you have cast in the role of Muhammad Ali?
