Vampire Diaries actress Kat Graham is set to play 2Pac‘s long time friend, and Baltimore School Of Arts classmate, Jada Pinkett-Smith.
The Benny Boom-directed film, entitled All Eyez On Me after his fourth studio album, will show ‘Pac from childhood and his rise to becoming a rapper, actor, and cover his death.
Jada recently talked to Howard Stern about her and ‘Pac’s relationship, where she cleared the rumors of them being romantically involved:
“It’s so funny. Now being older, I have more of an understanding of what that was between us. When you have two young people that have very strong feelings, but there was no physical chemistry between us at all, and it wasn’t even just for me! It was him too. There was a time when I was like, ‘Just kiss me! Let’s just see how this goes.’ When I tell you it had to be the most disgusting kiss for us both.”
Additionally, Demetrius Shipp Jr. will star as ‘Pac and Danai Gurira will play Afeni Shakur.
