Son to Play His Own Father in Notorious Biopic
11.25.08 by REELZ
12 year old Christopher Wallace Jr. talks to Interview magazine about what it feels like to play his own father as a boy in some scenes in the upcoming biopic Notorious. His father, the rapper known as Notorious B.I.G., was gunned down in 1997 at the age of 24 in a murder that has never been solved. The movie has, however, provided a chance for his son to get more in touch with a father he never got to know. Wallace Jr. says he definitely has plans to follow in his father's footsteps -- up to a point: "(I'll) probably (go into rap). But I want to go to college. And I want to graduate and study film."
