Kat Graham will play Diana Ross in the Michael Jackson biopic.

The 34-year-old actress and singer is the latest star attached to appear in Antoine Fuqua’s film about the King of Pop as the cast of ‘Michael’ continues to take shape.

Kat will play the role of the iconic Supremes frontwoman, who was asked to introduce the Jackson 5 to the world and remained a constant influence on the ‘Beat It’ hit maker.

Larenz Tate has been cast at the Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, who helped redefine music by giving acts including the Jackson 5, Diana Ross and The Supremes and Stevie Wonder the platform to succeed.
