New York’s Ujamaa Black Theater is planning a special tribute show to honor the late Bernie Mac, who died of pneumonia last August at age 50.

The company has placed an ad in Back Stage – an entertainment-industry magazine with a special focus on casting – seeking black actors, singers, and comedians, as well as look-alikes for Mac, Isaac Hayes and James Brown, according to the New York Post.

In the meantime, fans of the comic can look forward to one more blast of Bernie in the movies with Disney’s Old Dogs, in which he co-stars with John Travolta and Robin Williams
