But before he played a crime-fighting superhero, Chadwick Boseman played a few of iconic real-life men in American history. Boseman was a perfect match as Jackie Robinson in the 2013 film "42." He gained tremendous respect when he portrayed Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Thurgood Marshall in "Marshall."

To call Mahershala Ali a seasoned actor is an understatement. The actor has co-starred in some of America's favorite TV shows from "House of Cards" to "True Detective." He has more than one Academy Award under his belt and his portrayal in "Moonlight" was a game changer. Ali took home his first Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, which fans say was well deserved because it was one of the first times the intersectionality of Black culture and homosexuality was portrayed on the big screen. Check out a clip below of his phenomenal performance below.
