Going For The Oscar: Usher Hopes To Snag An Oscar For New Role As Sugar Ray Leonard
Hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow industry singer/actress Jennifer Hudson, Usher Raymond has vowed to be the next Black singer/actor to walk away with an Oscar for his new role as Sugar Ray Leonard in the movie Hands of Stone.
Usher was selected to portray the Leonard in the biopic for the Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran who is set to be played by Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal.
When asked about his new role, Usher says that he is excited to have the opportunity and has dedicated his time to being the best Sugar Ray Leonard ever.
“I’ve seen Oscar winners come out of left field… I’m just saying Jennifer Hudson (won an Oscar)… I’m going into it offering my interpretation and my hard work and my dedication to be the best Sugar Ray ever. Or as good as the man can be. I’ve spoken to him, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to live up to him. But I’ll try to be better than him.”
How do you think Usher will do in the new movie?
