Tupac Biopic Actor

The movie currently has no release date.

With production currently underway for Tupac’s highly-anticipated biopic ‘All Eyez On Me’, the actor who will play the iconic rapper has been revealed.

Demetrious Shipp Jr. has been chosen to play Tupac because of his similar features with the ‘Ghetto Gospel’ rapper.

According to TMZ, Shipp’s father also met Pac during his career in the music industry.

The role will be Shipp’s first big acting job and he will reportedly appear alongside Jamal Woodard, the actor who portrayed Biggie Smalls in 2009 biopic ‘Notorious’.

The film is set to document Tupac’s road from success to his untimely 1996 death in Las Vegas.

There is currently no release date for the Benny Boom-directed movie.
