Actor Marcc Rose To Play Tupac In “Straight Outta Compton”


Ice Cube revealed earlier this week that a Tupac scene has or is being filmed for the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. However, he did not reveal who would play the late rapper, nor was the actor listed on IMDB.

Entertainment Weekly has learned, via a Universal spokesperson that Pac will be played by actor Marcc Rose, who shares a very strong physical resemblance to the rap legend.

While this is definitely news, it's unclear how much of a role Pac will play in the film.

Rose has not been tapped to play Pac in the long-delayed big screen biopic.

Throwback to a few months ago when I had the flattop. This side by side photo of Tupac and I went viral on the internet, and was the cause of so many great things! The power of social media.
