'All Eyez On Me' Biopic: Check Out Demetrius Shipp Jr. In His New Role As Tupac (Photos)

The role of Tupac in All Eyez On Me is being played by Demetrius Shipp, Jr. 

Celebrity gossip site TMZ reported that Shipp's father worked in the music industry and met Tupac when the actor was a child.

Producer L.T. Hutton asked Shipp to take the part in the Morgan Creek film because of similarity in appearance to the West Coast Rap legend. Shipp took acting classes four times a week to prepare for the role, according to reports. 

Veteran actor Hill Harper posted collages of Shipp as Tupac and said:

"A coward dies a 1,000.deaths, a soldier..." Shooting #alleyezonme My brotha from anotha @dshippjraeome throwin' it down as #Pac!!!
