Tupac Shakur online casting call underway


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: A casting call for the upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic has been launched, encouraging fans to audition online for a chance to play the late rapper.

Morgan Creek Productions and Skee.TV/Karmaloop.TV launched an online casting call for “Tupac,” which will be directed by Antoine Fuqua (“Shooter,” “Training Day”).

The casting call encourages participants to upload their video audition to www.InSearchOfTupac.com. Fans and entrants also are asked to check the Web site often, as important announcements and additional opportunities will be unveiled during the course of the month-long audition.

“We are excited to partner with Morgan Creek on this innovative casting call,” said Scott “DJ Skee” Keeney, founder of Skee.TV. “This audition process is a great example of utilizing today’s ever-evolving technology to reach fans and actors around the world to pay homage to a hip-hop legend.”

“We’re looking for someone with the right mix of raw charm and charisma for the role,” says producer David Robinson. “At this point, we’re more concerned about finding someone with the ability to give their entire heart into the performance than just looks and personality.”

Over the course of the campaign, www.InSearchOfTupac.com will feature rare video footage and exclusive interviews from Tupac Shakur’s life as seen on the official website www.2pac.com.
