Chris Brown's acting career is moving right along: The 22-year-old star, also appearing in Steve Harvey's film "Think Like A Man," has been cast alongside "Lost" actor Josh Holloway in "Planet B-Boy," according to Entertainment Weekly.
Production is already underway for the film, which is based on the lauded documentary of the same name. "Jumping the Broom's" Laz Alonso, Josh Peck ("Drake & Josh") and Caity Lotz ("Mad Men") have also been cast.
The doc "Planet B-Boy" focused on the international breakdancing community, and the plot for the fictional release follows the same idea. It'll tell the story of an American group of b-boys who travel to France to compete in the Battle of the Year International Championships. We don't know the specifics on the roles Brown and Holloway will portray, but one can guess they'll have to bust a move at least once.
The director of the "B-Boy" documentary, Benson Lee, is also directing this adaptation.
