Jamie Foxx set the bar high when it comes to portraying legendary musicians in biopics in 2004′s Ray, but if we’re going by looks alone, Demetrius Shipp, Jr. is up for the job of meeting that bar.

Demetrius was cast to play Tupac Shakur in an upcoming biopic based on the late rapper’s life called All Eyez On Me, and reportedly, the unknown actor had no prior acting experience and was cast solely based on how much he looks like ‘Pac. According to TMZ:

We’re told producer L.T. Hutton approached Demetrius to star as the rapper in no small part because of the obvious similarities. He immediately took some crash acting classes … 4 times a week.

All Eyez On Me will detail ‘Pac’s whole life up until his shooting death as he was leaving the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada with Suge Knight following a Mike Tyson fight in 1996. Directed by Benny Boom, production on the film began last week in Atlanta.
