Tupac Biopic Lead Actor Announced

And it's not the guy from 'Straight Outta Compton.'

Tupac's upcoming biopic, All Eyez On Me, gets one of its biggest advancements since the announcement of the movie. TMZ has reported that the leading role will be given to Demetrius Shipp, Jr. Although he is relatively unknown as an actor and has very little experience professional, Shipp was chosen because of his uncanny resemblance to the late rapper. It's also reported that Shipp's father once crossed paths with Tupac, but we're not sure whether or not this had an effect on director Benny Boom's decision to cast Shipp. Check out a few exclusive shots from the set on the director's Instagram handle.
