The production process for Tupac’s All Eyez On Me biopic is currently underway in Atlanta, Ga., and this week brings even more news on the makeup of the cast.
According to Deadline, Grace Gibson will star as famed R&B singer Faith Evans. Gibson, the daughter of world-renowned actress Lynn Whitfield, signed on to portray Evans in the Benny Boom-directed motion picture. The singer will also act alongside Jamal Woolward, who played Biggie Smalls in the Notorious biopic.
Recently, Kat Graham signed on to play Jada Pinkett-Smith, while former The Wire actor, Jamie Hector, will assume the role of Pac’s stepfather, Mutulu Shakur. But one of the biggest additions was The Walking Dead‘s Danai Gurira.
The Eclipsed actress will step into the shoes of the “California Love” rapper’s mother, Afeni Shakur, who also holds the title of executive producer on the forthcoming biopic.
