Suge Knight Cast In Stallone Movie, Associate Goes On Trial

Suge Knight has signed

on to star in a movie as himself in a movie that ironically ties into his own

real life story and focuses on the murders of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.

"Rampart Scandal,"

which Stallone is writing, directing and starring in, added Knight to the cast

to give the movie a more realistic feel.

Stallone will play

Russell Poole, who broke the Rampart Scandal story and the theory that Knight

may have played a role in the murder of Shakur and B.I.G.

Stallone said that

he casted Knight to give him the opportunity to answer questions that no one

ever asked. Stallone added that Knight was doing this at the cost of his own

career, negative or positive.

Knight is currently

incarcerated for parole violations, after allegedly striking a parking valet

outside of a Hollywood area Knight club.

In real life Knight

news, a former employee went on trial this week for attempted murder, despite

authorities acknowledging that the man in question, Timothy "Timmy Roo"

McDonald never fired his gun, nor was a victim injured or even identified.

McDonald's family

said that charges were an attempt to get him to divulge information on his former

employer, Knight.

"The police

wanted Timmy to snitch on Suge Knight, to tell lies," McDonald's mother,

Mahalia told the Los Angeles Times. "The detectives told Timmy if he didn't

play ball, they'd get him."

Authorities said

that the charges are based on an October incident, in which they claim they

came across a planned drive-by shooting.

Officials claim

they saw McDonald pointing a handgun out of the car window. Police said that

a man on the sidewalk ducked for cover, as if he was expecting to be a recipient

of the gunfire.

A driver of the

car with the ironic name of Darryl "Biggie" Small noticed the deputies

and sped away before shots were fired.

McDonald worked

with Death Row's security detail. his older brother, Alton McDonald was gunned

down in Compton last year.
