Marcc Rose, Wavyy Jonez Cast As Tupac And Biggie In USA’s Murder Mystery Pilot

By

Marcc Rose as Tupac. The resemblance is uncanny. 

Marcc Rose (Straight Outta Compton) and Wavyy Jonez have been cast as Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace AKA Biggie Smalls (respectively) in USA’s new murder mystery pilot Unsolved. They join Josh Duhamel as Detective Kading, Jimmi Simpson as Detective Russell Poole and Bokeem Woodbine as Officer Daryn Dupree.

Unsolved is based on the experiences of former LAPD Detective Greg Kading, who led multiple law enforcement task forces investigating the murders and wrote the book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations. Tupac, a poet, actor and legendary rapper, was shot and killed in Las Vegas in 1996. Wallace, who went from a small time drug dealer to the face of East coast rap, was shot and killed in Los Angeles, six months after Shakur. Both murders remain unsolved.

Unsolved will be directed by Emmy winner Anthony Hemingway (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), who will also executive produce alongside Mark Taylor.
