Are you the next B.I.G.?
08.11.07 by REELZ
Casting is under way for Notorious, the biopic about the life and death of theNotorious B.I.G. The project, which is being produced by B.I.G.'s mother and his two former managers, is kicking the search for its B.I.G. into high gear.
Because they feel that finding an actor that can physically and emotionally represent the slain rapper is such a challenge, they are opening the casting to unknowns as well as professional actors. Says B.I.G.'s manager, "In the typical Hollywood world, no one came to mind outside of Forest Whitaker who could capture the essence entirely." Unfortunately, Whitaker is over 20 years older than B.I.G. was when he was killed.
Interested parties who feel they can capture the essence of B.I.G. are encouraged to submit audition videos starting 12AM PST tonight at www.biggiecasting.com.
