Earlier today (Jan. 12), it was announced that celebrated small-screen actress, Danai Gurira, has been chosen to play Afeni Shakur in the upcoming 2Pac biopic, All Eyez On Me. Director Benny Boom has been tasked with bringing the life of such an iconic figure to life. One of the most infamous subjects to which ‘Pac is known for is his part in the East Coast / West Coast beef.

Undoubtedly that topic will be depicted within this feature film. During the time that Tupac spent at Death Row Records Marion “Suge” Knight was started out as one of its co-founders. Knights legacy of abrasive actions have left quite the impression on Hip-Hop. So, who has been cast to fill Knight’s signature blood red suit?

In a photo that been circulating the internet, Demetrius Shipp, Jr — who has been confirmed to play 2Pac in the film — is seen pictured with none other than E.D.I. Mean and Young Noble. Another emerging actor is also seen in that photograph. Dominic L. Santana, who in the past has earned work as an extra on One Tree Hill, is purportedly playing Suge, this according to 93.5 KDAY’s Facebook page.

“The actor playing Suge Knight in the Tupac biopic “All Eyez On Me” was revealed in a pic posted by his fellow cast members. Dominic L. Santana is Suge Knight in Tupac Biopic ‘All Eyez On Me,'” so read the Facebook post.

As the saying goes, ‘If it’s on the ‘Book it’s got to be true.’ Does Santana and Suge physically favor?

    He looks more like Suge than Straight outta Compton Suge

  • Kamal the 1st

    Who cares if he looks like him – can he act like him. I’d take the performance over appearance any day.

    this shit is gonna have a 90% suck rate, tupac ain’t biggie or NWA he’s a larger than life personality that will be nearly impossible to replicate. they might be able to find a guy who sorta looks like him if you close one eye turn a quarter to the right & have an imagination but its a whole different issue attempting find someone who can even get close to mimicking the one of a kind great. i think this movie will be cheesy & unauthentic resurrection was the closest we will ever & should ever get to a tupac movie. ;)>

    • Leonard Tarver

      Thank you Bro… You’re only the 2nd person that agrees with me… lol

      • RichFromBX

        consider me the 3rd…I didn’t think it was all that great either. If you’re from that era, you know they left a lot of stuff.


    Dude does look like Pac though!!!!BRUH💯✔🔊🔊✔

  • Papi Peligro

    Pac bout the only biopic I want to see. Maybe Deathrow.But the same dudes that straight out of compton keep the same characters and story rolling.

    • Uncle Ruckus

      Have you read Prodigy’s book? A Mobb Deep film DONE RIGHT would be some next level shit!

      • meanygreene

        I haven’t read the book, but a friend said there was a part about him seeing a ufo.

      • Black Adam

        O word?

      • Uncle Ruckus

        Yeah. No offence but that shit was too weird for me! I don’t know if you recall they (Mobb Deep) did a film. I think it was called Murda Muzik or was around the time that album came out. In that film they have a mansion they were all staying in. Anyway, so there’s this dude poppa mobb. He musta bought some fried chicken or whatever. I can’t recall if he fell a asleep or what not but long story short, when he returned the chicken was gone….so he shot the dude who ate his shit in the foot. Some real n***a shit right there! The audio book was on Youtube and probably still there.

  • Leonard Tarver

    I watched “Above the Rim” the other day. No person can play 2Pac and be successful at it. NOBODY!!!

  • meanygreene

    Get ja rule.

  • NY’s Gmoney

    The dudes they’ve got to play Suge Knight in the past weren’t menacing enough.

  • #Mr.Toadman AKA Toastman

    This looks wack af

  • Markus

    Doesn’t matter who the supporting cast is. If the guy playing Pac doesn’t deliver then the movie will bomb.

  • ursocalledgod

    this shyt look dumb as hell lmao hopefully they do a good job with the acting and story telling cause just going by looks this shyt looks silly. nwa got errrbody wanting to do a fuccing biopic. even master p talking about bring his no limit story to the screen LMFAO smh

  • Black Adam

    Better not f this up.

  • TheAfroRican

    The dude playing Suge looks like Big Pun before the record deal.

    • El Dogga

      LMAO!!! That looks nothing like Suge!

    • MLB44

      Damn I thought the exact same thing as soon as I saw the pic! For a second I thought it was Big Pun.

  • El Dogga

    9/10 times this movie is gonna be AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MLB44

    After the unbelievable success of Straight Outta Compton the bar will be too high for this movie. I think they should wait a few years because anything less than really good will be perceived as a major flop.


      It really depends, when Singleton walked off I thought ” Damn” but Benny Boom I think can do the job.

  • Azim Esmail

    They should have worked with the group who made Straight Outta Compton.
