This is creepy.

Before you grab your popcorn and get ready to watch N.W.A's highly anticipated biopic 'Straight Outta Compton,' be warned that its been confirmed that there is a Tupac cameo - and be further warned that the actor playing Pac looks eerily like the rap legend. 

Actor Marcc Rose has been tasked with playing the late Tupac in the forthcoming film, out 28th August, in a short scene that sees him record 'California Love.' 

Rose has shared behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram, taken whilst shooting the film and in full-costume, and the resemblance to Tupac is uncanny.

Rose's scene was shot back in June, on what would have been Tupac's 44th birthday. Ice Cube wrote on Instagram; "Happy Birthday to the homie Tupac. Shooting the Tupac scene for 'Straight Outta Compton' today. The stars are aligned."
