Keep your head up Pac fans, the Thug Life story will soon be coming to a theater near you and it looks like an unknown might get the starring role.

Skee.TV in along with Morgan Creek Productions/Universal Pictures and director Antoine Fuqua will be holding a month-long online casting call for a newcomer acting hopeful to play Tupac in the upcoming biopic All Eyez On Me [working title]. All those interested in a shot at auditioning will be instructed to upload a video and fans will vote and choose the winner. The whole campaign will serve the trifecta purpose of casting, early movie promotion and advertiser bait for companies interested in having their brand associated with the project.  The Tupac All Eyez On Me casting process kicks off before the end of February. Be sure to check back to http://skee.tv/ later in the month for more details.
