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.
