For years, a Tupac film has been in the works, leaving most to wonder if we'd ever actually see this biopic at all. However, there's no need to worry anymore. Not only has principle photography begun on the movie, but an actor has been officially cast as Tupac!
Who's Playing Him?
Portraying Tupac is an unknown named Demetrius Shipp Jr. And according to the official Facebook page for the Tupac film, this guy will indeed play the slain rapper/actor.
As you can see, the resemblance is obviously a winner. I have an even more important question at hand though:
Can He Play Tupac?
Tupac was a pretty intense guy, so it's gonna take more than putting on a bandanna and nose ring to satisfy Tupac fans worldwide. Playing this role means being able to portray every side of the man, and well! However, if we're just judging the resemblance alone, it's definitely a winner.
When Is the Movie Coming Out?
Right now it's only known that this movie will be out some time in 2016. Only adding another reason to why I think 2016 might be one of the best years in film ever.
