Notorious B.I.G.’s only son has no regrets about choosing to pursue acting over rapping. HipHollywood sat down with the 20 year old actor, about his role in the new flick Kicks and the pressures of having Big Poppa and Faith Evans as his parents.
“I was just taken down this path, and I’m definitely going to enjoy it,” he said with a huge smile. “I feel like it started with Notorious and after that I just wanted to see how far I could go.”
Many got their first glimpse of Wallace portraying a younger version of his legendary father in 2009’s Notorious before working alongside Will Ferrell in Everything Must Go.
In Kicks he plays Albert, the jokester best friend to a young kid whose brand new shoes are stolen by a gang of neighborhood bullies. “I’m just blessed to be apart of this” he said. “Seeing that poster, just makes me happy all the time.”
Kicks which also stars Jahking Guillory, Christopher and Kofi Siriboe hits theaters September 9th.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
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.
