Changes: 10 Actors Who Shouldn’t Be Cast As Tupac In Biopic [PHOTOS]


As you may or may not know, the long awaited Tupac Shakur biopic is set to begin shooting spring 2014, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. But there’s one problem: the leading actor role has yet to be cast.

Yes, you read that right. The shooting date is set, producers and financiers are in tact, but the star of the show is still left to question. But don’t worry, because Hip-Hop Wired is willing to provide some consultation on who should not be selected to play the late, great MC.

This list will work wonders with Madame Noire‘s list of Black actors who would do Shakur’s legacy justice.

After the jump you’ll find a list of leading actors that may not be the best choice for this particular job. No shade, of course.

    Find the guy in the pictures they post about Tupac still being alive.

    I think you have to find an actor who’s in his twenties to play the role. 2pac has been dead so long that people forget he was twenty- four or twenty-five when he died, you need someone young, some of the guys mentioned were just too old.
