Meet Tate Taylor - Director of 'Get On Up'


Film: "Get On Up"

Tate Taylor is one of the hottest emerging talents in Hollywood right now.

He is the epitome of the total 'Hollywood' package. Movie star good looks, an acclaimed writer, director and producer with a breakout Oscar nominated hit film under his belt, a new release that is already generating award buzz and a stream of film and television projects in the works. However, he's as far from a Hollywood cliché as you're likely to find.
