Ian McShane confirmed, Nelsan Ellis added to cast of Bolden!

ABFF Honors - Nelsan Ellis

Nelsan Ellis is joining the cast of Dan Pritzker’s Bolden!, our Jazz biopic that’s been in and out of Wilmywood since 2008. Or is that 2007? Can’t keep track anymore. Either way, we are so excited they are ready to start back up again! Along with Gary Carr taking on the title role, Ian McShane (who we scooped last month) is playing Judge Perry, Deadline confirms and now we know that award-winning actor Nelsan Ellis will play the role of Bartley, the Bolden Band manager. Ellis is best known as Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s True Blood.

Music is still set to be performed by Grammy-winner Wynton Marsalis.  Production kicks off  here in Wilmywood  (and also Georgia) next month.
