The Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me, is having a good week in terms of casting. The latest actor to join the feature is Jamie Hector. The Wire actor joins Demetrius Shipp Jr., who stars as the rapper, Danai Gurira, as well as Kat Graham who was recently cast as Jada Pinkett Smith.
Kat Graham from the CW’s The Vampire Diaries has signed on to play Jada Pinkett Smith in the forthcoming Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me. The Gotham actress and late hip hop star were friends and were classmates at the Baltimore School for the Arts.
Danai Gurira is best known for her role as the samurai sword toting Michonne on TV’s The Walking Dead, but she will be taking a break from killing walkers to something more maternal as Afeni Shakur in the Tupac Shakur biopic, All Eyez On Me.
