Get On Up - Trailer: Will the Movie Be As Exciting As James Brown?

Some in the Conversation Circle had the pleasure of seeing James Brown  perform live, and one of our members actually met James Brown, in Los Angeles at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, many years ago. When approached by our member, who was in awe, James Brown smiled and presented a gloved-hand to shake! Here's hoping " Get On Up " is as exciting as James Brown was.

The company is said to be continuing its investigation into Charney's "alleged misconduct." Related : UPDATE: American Apparel Founder Finally Fired American Apparel Founder Finally Fired
