More details are starting to emerge about production on the new Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me, including the film’s cast. R&B singer Keyshia Cole confirmed over the weekend that she’s landed a part in the project. In an Instagram caption, Cole revealed that she will play a character named Queen.

“So happy to announce I will be playing a part in this movie … playing my girl from back in the day! Her name is Queen! Don’t mind playing a gangsta.”

Tupac was a roadie back in the day for Queen Latifah, but something tells us that’s not the Queen that Cole will be channeling. Actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. will play the late rapper, and joining him in the project is Barack Obama’s old college roommate, Hill Harper.

Shipp has been doing a good job of documenting production on his IG, posting several photographs of himself in character. The actor has also been preparing for the role by spending time with members of Pac’s group, The Outlawz.

Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”

Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
