Actor Keith Robinson Cast in Tupac Biopic ‘All Eyez On Me’
Another actor has been added to the cast of the Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me as Keith Robinson was tapped to play TNT Records founder Atron Gregory. Gregory was 'Pac's first manager and helped land him a job as a dancer with Digital Underground. He also served as his manager when the rapper left Digital Underground and embarked on his solo career. Robinson has been a part of films like Get on Up and Dreamgirls, plus television shows such as NCIS, One Love, Monk and many more.
All Eyez On Me began production in Dec. 2015 after a multimillion dollar lawsuit and several changes at the director position. Famed director John Singleton left the project in 2015 after claiming that, "the people involved aren't really respectful of the legacy of 2Pac." Benny Boom was later announced as director. 'Pac's mother, Afeni Shakur, is serving as Executive Producer.
Along with Robinson, Dominic L. Santana has been casted as Suge Knight, Demetrius Shipp Jr. will play Tupac, Danai Gurira will star as Afeni Shakur and Kat Graham is set to play Jada Pinkett Smith. Jamal Woodward, who played The Notorious B.I.G. in Notorious, will once again play Biggie in All Eyez On Me.
The film does not have a release date as of press time.
