USA’s Tupac-Biggie Pilot Unsolved Adds Three

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it’s still in search of an official title at the time of writing – Unsolved: The Murders of Biggie and Tupac is the current working one – USA Network’s true-life crime drama Unsolved is beginning to beef up its ensemble cast.

Four weeks ago, we brought you the news that Josh Duhamel (Transformers: The Last Knight), Bokeem Woodbine (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Westworld‘s Jimmi Simpson had all signed on, and now, Deadline is reporting that the network has added another three: Luke James, Aisha Hinds and Letoya Luckett (Ballers).

From today’s report, it’s understood James has closed a deal to play Sean “Puffy” Combs (Aka Puff Diddy), the “young and wildly successful founder of Bad Boy Records, the label of Christopher Wallace.” Hinds, meanwhile, has climbed aboard to play the coveted part of Wallace’s grieving mother, Voletta Wallace, who became a vocal campaigner for justice »

Hinds can currently be seen on Wgn America’s “Underground” as Harriet Tubman, as well as Fox’s limited series “Shots Fired.” She is repped by Greene & Associates Talent Agency.

LeToya Luckett will play Sharitha Golden, the estranged wife of Death Row records CEO Suge Knight and seemingly one of the only people at the time not intimidated by him in 1997. Luckett has recurred on Fox’s “Rosewood” and HBO’s »

15 March 2017 11:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With less than four months left until Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters, the cast is getting back together for reshoots.

Unsolved: Tupac And Biggie Have Been Cast!

6 March 2017 5:34 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

USA has come up with a show, similar to Making a Murderer or American Crime Story: The People V. Oj Simpson, where they will explore unexplained deaths; a scripted true crime series. Unsolved, at least in the first season, will focus on the deaths of the great Tupac and Biggie Smalls. This hits home to me as I was affected by Tupac's death immensely. I never listened to Biggie until years later, and at that point I realized how tragic of a loss these two performers were.

It is still unclear who actually committed the murders of these two individuals, even though we Know -- we have no proof, and USA intends on exploring this.

Who will actually portray these roles is the big question that was answered today.

Marcc Rose will reprise the role he played as Tupac in Straight Outta Compton, and what a great pick this is. »

Tupac and Biggie Cast in USA Network’s ‘Unsolved’ Pilot

6 March 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network’s pilot “Unsolved” — the true crime series that will chronicle the two major police investigations into the separate murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls — has cast Tupac and Biggie.

Marcc Rose will play Tupac and newcomer Wavyy Jonez will play Biggie, Variety has learned.

Unsolved” is not the first project in which Rose has played Tupac — he also portrayed the rapper in the film “Straight Outta Compton,” which is his only acting credit to date.

For Jonez, “Unsolved” marks the acting debut for the rapper who was discovered during a nation-wide casting call for the part. Auditioning among hundreds of other hopefuls, Jonez’s tape caught the attention of Anthony Hemingway, who will serve as executive producer and director on the pilot.

The duo joins previously announced stars Josh Duhamel, Jimmi Simpson and Bokeem Woodbine, who will all play detectives that were integral in the cases surrounding the highly-publicized murders.

Underground Photos: First Look at Season Two Premiere!

5 March 2017 10:29 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Wgn America's megahit, Underground, returns on Wednesday, March. 8. The pulse-racing, action-packed season finale left many of our heroes on uncertain ground.

The infamous Macon 7 were being haunted, and Noah was caught and thrown in jail. Rosalee made it to the other side, but without her love, and many of her friends. Cato, who was thought to have perished, made off with a chest filled with money, and Ms. Ernestine was separated from her kids and sold off. 

Don't miss our slideshow of the 17 Best Moments so Far from the series.

With the introduction of famed abolitionist and former slave, Harriet Tubman, infamous slave-catcher Patty Cannon, and the eventual appearance of Frederick Douglass (guest star John Legend), Underground Season 2 will be even more politicized than before.

The women of Underground will be at the forefront of season two, as it reflects women historically being at the forefront of the movement, both »

Reshoots reportedly underway on Spider-Man: Homecoming at Disneyland

With a little over four months to go before Tom Holland’s wall-crawler swings back into cinemas, it seems that reshoots are underway on Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, with McU Exchange highlighting the following tweets, including one from Disneyland Resort:

Of course, this being a Marvel production as opposed to a DC movie, the reshoots are a completely normal part of the process, and in no way means there’s any problems behind the scenes (that’s a joke by the way, before any irate DC fans launch a tirade against me).

There is of course also the possibility that these are actually scenes for Avengers: Infinity War, but I guess we’ll not know for sure until July. »

Vincent D’Onofrio would love to see Kingpin battle Tom Holland’s Spider-Man

For those of you unaware, Vincent D’Onofrio has one of the most fan interactive Twitter accounts of any actor out there on social media. He genuinely seems like a great, down-to-earth guy, so it’s no surprise that when someone asked him if he would like to see his version of Kingpin (seen in Netflix’s Daredevil) go up against Tom Holland’s new incarnation of Spider-Man, he joyfully replied. Check out the exchange here…
