R&B singer Sean Kingston has apparently landed the lead role in the Notorious B.I.G. biopic reports Starpulse News Blog.
Kingston says, “When I first heard about that movie, it was through management. My management told me about it and you know I had auditioned for it and I met with the director and I nailed it and he gave me a shot now at being in the movie.”
Notorious B.I.G.’s mother Voletta Wallace, and his two former managers, Wayne Barrow and Mark Pitts, played a key role in casting and were keen to sign-up an unknown star for the coveted role in the film which Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is producing.
B.I.G., also known as Christopher Wallace, was shot to death in March 1997 outside a Los Angeles party.
