One of the greatest honors as an actor is to be able to celebrate someone’s legacy while they’re still here creating it.

I’ve gotten to do it a few times in my career playing Chris Gardner and Muhammad Ali, and every time it’s a fulfilling and expansive experience beyond compare.

So now, I’m proud to show you all our first trailer for King Richard, the story of the man who introduced the world to @Venus Williams and Serena Williams.

The origin story for some REAL DEAL superheroes!!

Thank You Venus, Serena, Isha, Lyndrea, Yetunde, Oracene, and Richard for letting us share your story with the World!
