Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls
Oh man, I really believe that B.I.G. just rolled over in his grave, and Faith Evans is somewhere mournfully singing “I’ll Be Missing You” (which I HATED BTW) on a corner…
Longtime friend and business associate of the Notorious B.I.G., Sean “Diddy” Combs, has signed on to executive produce an upcoming biographical film about the slain rapper. As previously reported, producers of the untitled film commenced an open casting call this past Sunday (August 12) in order to find a suitable actor to portray the legendary MC. According to Variety, Fox Searchlight Films has also selected George Tillman Jr., who helmed such films as Soul Food and Men of Honor, to direct the film. “We know he will make a brilliant movie and show the true humanity of Christopher Wallace’s character,” said Fox president of production Claudia Lewis of Tillman. Also producing the project are Biggie’s former managers Mark Pitts and Wayne Barrow, and the rapper’s mother Voletta Wallace. Production is set to begin in the fall.
Ugh, I just really really don’t believe this even warrants a movie. Seriously. Sure, I am big B.I.G. fan, but really, I don’t think I could sit through 2 hours of a biopic about BIGGIE. Come on ya’ll! “Ray” — sure, but even THAT ish was too long. Biopics should be reserved for people who have made a profound impact over music in GENERAL…that’s just my $.02.
However, someone will watch this. The same people who think that Tupac is still alive. Boy stop!
I suggest for the title role:
ROFL. Let me quit. Diddy just want to put himself in the movie, that’s all. I bet you his tail have 4 cameos. Makes me sick!
