Actor Michael B. Jordan may grace the big screen in a biopic about the late legendary visionary Tupac Shakur. In a roundtable interview with Forest Whitaker, Matthew McConaughey and other Hollywood heavy hitters. During the interview, he dropped the ball about auditioning for possibly the role of his young career. Tupac was, without a doubt, an icon of the early '90s, and a complex figure, not easily pinned down or defined. Jordan may not be able to rap, but that's okay! Tupac actually studied theatre before becoming a rapper, so this may work in this heart throbs favor.
Tupac's mother Afeni Shakur is on board with the project, and all of the rights to his music have been secured. The only thing the movie is missing right now is Jordan confirmed in the lead.
Jordan may not be able to rap, but that might actually be a good thing in this case.
Anthony Mackie has also been rumored to have auditioned for the role of Pac. After his flopped attempt in Notorious, I advise him to seek other employment.
