I'm not going to get on my rant about how Hollywood has no clue how to cast (and narrate) real-life black people, because you probably know it by heart at this point. But know that Usher Raymond IV (otherwise known simply as the R&B crooner Usher) as Sugar Ray Leonard is ridiculous. That's all.
I am intrigued, however, by Edgar Ramirez, even in theory unrelated to any of his movies. He stars as Panamanian fighter Robert Duran in the upcoming film HANDS OF STONE, alongside Raymond, Ellen Barkin, John Turturro and Robert De Niro. Synopsis:

HANDS OF STONE is written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz and hits theaters August 26.
