Now that we can finally stop getting hyped up about Star Wars, our attention shifts to getting hyped about the upcoming Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me, with TMZ reporting that Demetrius Shipp, Jr. will play the role of Shakur in the movie.
If you haven’t heard of lil’ Shipp before that’s probably because he only has a single acting credit to his name according to IMDb, and it was his resemblance to the late hip-hop icon that landed him the role.
His other claim to fame is that his dad apparently “crossed paths” with Tupac once. How this makes him a good fit is a bit of a mystery, but we put this question to the doubters: how many times has your dad crossed paths with Tupac?
No word yet on a release date, but in the meantime the director of the film, Benny Boom, treated us to some exclusive behind-the-scenes shots via Instagram, which you can check out below.
