EXCLUSIVE: “Fake” Big Pun Movie Gets Denounced By Widow


(AllHipHop News) Apparently, there is a Big Pun movie on the way, but the family has already denounced the looming project.

Last week a casting call went out stating the following:

Do you look like Big Pun?

Miami Talent Casting is now casting overweight hispanic actors to play Big Pun in an upcoming BIG PUN film project. Casting directors are searching nationwide for the lead role and casting directors are looking for a male actor ages 18 to 40 years old to play Christopher Rios “Big Pun”. “Must be around 5’2” and resemble Rios in looks and physical build. Please note that Rios was severely overweight, and we are seeking actors who are also severely overweight.”

“No singing/rapping required (lip-syncing ONLY), but must be able to mimic/imitate Rios’ mannerisms and gestures. Impersonation of Rios’ speaking voice preferred if possible.”

Liza Rios, the late rapper’s widow, swiftly denounced the potential biopic and stated that she would be taking legal action.

“Hey I have nothing to do with this project. These people never even came to me for permission or to consult on OUR LIVES. So basically it’s a FAKE Bio pic of PUN and we all know how that goes. I was so not involved in this process BUT My LAWYER now is!,” Rios said though her Facebook account.

The open casting didn’t specify who was creating the movie, but stated that it would pay $5,000 for 5 days of shooting.

Seeking male actor 18-40 years old to portray Christopher Rios ”Big Pun.” Must be around 5’2” and resemble Rios in looks and physical build. Please note that Rios was severely overweight, and we are seeking actors who are also severely overweight.

No singing/rapping required (lip-syncing ONLY), but must be able to mimic/imitate Rios’ mannerisms and gestures. Impersonation of Rios’ speaking voice preferred if possible. Google Big Pun if needed to know more about character please.

    All bad how can they even think they are gonna make a Pun movie without the consent of Pun’s estate? Dumb, Dumb…. Only 5 stacks for a lead role? Laughable low budget home movie.

    All these opportunist hacks trying to do biopics on the heels of SOC need to chill. Do the sh!t right or don’t do it at all. Get the families’ consent, break bread, and get quality writers, directors, and actors on board.

  • not to mention that Pun was about 5’10/5’11..

    • STEPH

      No he wasn’t I seen him at the 107.5 concert at the Hyatt performing…he was about 5’7-5’8

      • i knew him personally. -_-

      • STEPH

        That’s cool but I’ve seen the dude up close and he wasn’t 5’10-5’11. More like 5’6-5’7….maybe 5’8 at the most.

      • not going to continue with this. you’re right… don’t even know why it matters. he’s not 5’2. that was my point. there’s a HUGE difference between 5’2 and 5’8.

  • water_ur_seeds

    5’2 and aged between 18-40 years old??? Pun wasn’t even severely overweight in his younger days…

    Let’s Hope they don’t do the big pun movie period.
