Casting revealed for USA Network's 'Biggie and Tupac' series

A new series that aims to take a close look at the murders of Biggie Smalls and Tupac is making its way to USA Network, and in anticipation of the program titled Unsolved, the company announced the actors who'll step into the shoes of the famed lyricists.

Marcc Rose, who starred as Tupac in 2016's Straight Outta Compton will reprise the role, while newcomer Wavyy Jonez has been cast as Mo Money Mo Problems rapper Biggie.

Jonez's video audition captured the attention of casting directors and Hemingway during a nationwide open casting call to fill the role of Biggie.

Josh Duhamel, Jimmi Simpson, and Bokeem Woodbine have all also been cast as LAPD officers.

Unsolved is based on Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations, a 2011 memoir by former LAPD detective Greg Kading. He is repped by ICM Partners. Both of the murders remain unsolved today. Hemingway will exec produce along with Mark Taylor and Kyle Long, who wrote the pilot. Kading will serve as a consultant to the show. Also a rapper, Jonez is repped by First Access Entertainment.
