Tupac Movie Casting Call
Morgan Creek films recently launched a website where fans and up-and-coming actors can upload audition reels and submit videos for a change to portray iconic rapper, Tupac Shakur, in the Antione Fuqua-directed biopic. With a script by Oscar-nominated writing team Stephen J. Rivele and Chris Wilkinson, the duo behind the Will Smith vehicle, Ali, the legendary MC's story is in good hands. XXL plays casting director and picks the actors we'd like to see bring 'Pac's life to the big screen.
Rick Ross as Marion “Suge” Knight
With the size and stature of Suge, it wouldn’t be hard to picture the Bauwse stepping into the menacing role of the co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records.
Alfre Woodard as Afeni Shakur
As an Academy Award nominee and (in addition to being a 12-time Emmy Award nominee), Woodward has the acting chops to do the political activist and ex-Black Panther justice.
Soulja Boy as Greg "Shock G" Jacobs
Dance moves and stage presence are needed to portray the one who put the satin on ladies panties. SB got this.
Jada Pinkett as Jada Pinkett
Makes sense that Jada would portray herself to depict her relationship 'Pac.
Gravy as The Notorious B.I.G.
Brooklyn MC Jamal "Gravy" Woolard was tapped to play the Notorious B.I.G. in the biopic Notorious. No reason why he shouldn’t continue the role.
Nipsey Hussle as Snoop Dogg
Just take a look at them for a second.
