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.

Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’



Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.

“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”


Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.

So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.

To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.

Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.

In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.

It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
