Josh starred with Chadwick in the 2017 Thurgood Marshall biopic, Marshall.
Chadwick’s text to Josh, entitled CATCH THE RAIN, read: “If you are in Los Angeles, you woke up this morning to the rare and peaceful sound of steady precipitation.
“If you’re like me, maybe you looked at the week’s forecast and found that it’s supposed to rain for three straight days; not without breaks of sunlight and reprieves of moist gloom, but yeah it’s gonna be coming down like cats and dogs.
“Great. We’re stuck inside these damn quarantines because of the COVID, and now we can’t even get no sun in Cali. Come on now!”
“But now that the rain has stopped and today’s storm has cleared, I urge you to go outside and take a DEEP breath.
“Notice how fresh the air is right now, after our skies have had a 3 week break from the usual relentless barrage of fumes from bumper to bumper LA commuters, and now today’s rain has given the City of Angels a long overdo [sic] and much-needed shower. Inhale and exhale this moment, and thank God for the unique beauties and wonders of the day.”
“We should take advantage of every moment we can to enjoy the simplicity of God’s creation, whether it be clear skies and sun or clouded over with gloom.
“And hey, if the air is this clear right now, and it does rain tomorrow, I might even put jars and bins out and catch the rain. Throw that in the water filter and I have a water more alkaline than any bottled brand out there.”
This morning Josh came up with another Instagram Video mentioning Chadwick in a way a someone who lost a close friend can understand: He said “There aren’t words to express what an amazing human being Chadwick Boseman was,” Gad began, struggling to get the words out You come upon people in your life who are next-level good. This was a man who was beyond talented and was so unbelievably giving not only as a performer but as a human being.
“Beyond just being Black Panther, Chadwick was T’Challah in real life, he was somebody who just gave and gave and gave and never stopped giving. 2020 has been so devastating for so many reasons — this one hurts because it’s taking away somebody who was honestly one of the greats.
“I don’t know how to process this, but I want to send my love to his entire family and to all the fans out there, he’s gonna be missed. Love you guys, stay safe. Chadwick, rest in peace my friend, love you.”
