2Pac Could Have Been A Jedi In ‘Star Wars’ Film?

So this is interesting … Before 2 Pac’s 1996 death, the rapper was being considered for a role in the 1999 Star Wars film.

During a recent interview with 2Pac-Forum, Death Row Records’ former Chief Engineer Rick Clifford revealed that the late rapper could have been in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

“It’s sad because Pac found out that I worked for Brian Austin Green, who was on 90210, then he found out I was in some movies. So we always talked about his film career and stuff,” Clifford explained. “He was telling me that he was supposed to read for George Lucas and them.”

He added, “They wanted him to be a Jedi … I’m serious. Samuel L. [Jackson] got Tupac’s part.”

On September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot in a drive by shooting in Las Vegas. The rapper was taken to a nearby hospital where he died six years later.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
