Woolard as Biggie
Mar. 18, 2008
To your right, you'll notice the late great rapper Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls has come to life. In celluloid, that is. Wayne Barrow, producer of the upcoming biopic NOTORIOUS, which chronicles the relatively short but significant life of the famed rapper, has revealed a picture of Jamal Woolard in costume as Biggie at the film's official blog. Woolard, a lilttle-known actor, apparently is also a musician in his own right and, according to Barrow has a personality whose "…natural charm and charismatic demeanor is very reminiscent of B.I.G." As is his ability to score some red hot 'tang. The film's set for release January 16th of next year.
||NOTORIOUS director George Tillman Jr. also directed the criminally under-appreciated Robert DeNiro and Cuba Gooding Jr. starring drama MEN OF HONOR.
