‘Notorious’ Actor Cast As Biggie in Tupac Biopic

If you mention Tupac in one sentence, you must mention Biggie in the next. That’s why the casting for the All Eyez On Me biopic is imperative.

So far, the casting directors have nailed it. While most are unfamiliar with Demetrius Shipp Jr., the actor who will portray the “Hail Mary” lyricist, folks certainly will recognize the one playing B.I.G.

It’s Jamal Woolard, the star of 2009’s Notorious. He will be reprising his role of the hip-hop great.

The two budding stars were snapping it up on set this week. Take a look at the pics below.

What do you think? Are they spot on?
