TV star Nick Eversman has been cast as Mick Jagger in the new James Brown biopic, which the Rolling Stones star is producing.

The “CSI: Miami,” “House” and “The Tomorrow People” actor will portray the rocker as a much younger man in “The Help” director Tate Taylor’s new film, titled “Get On Up.”

According to CinemaBlend.com, Eversman landed the role after moving like Jagger on his audition tape.

The actor offered up a side-by-side comparison of his performance to archival footage of the Rolling Stones frontman.

He joins a cast that includes “42” star Chadwick Boseman as Brown, Dan Aykroyd and Taylor’s “The Help” stars Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer.
