‘TVD’ Star Kat Graham Playing Jada Pinkett Smith in Tupac Shakur Biopic


Kat Graham is putting her acting chops to the test by playing one of today’s most beautiful women in the Tupac Shakur biopic.

The Vampire Diaries star will be playing Jada Pinkett Smith — yes, Will Smith’s gorgeous wife — in the film titled All Eyez on Me, reports Variety.

Fortunately for the 26-year-old CW actress, the film is shooting in Atlanta so it’ll be easy to balance both the movie as well as her duties as Bonnie Bennett on the supernatural series.

The film will chronicle Tupac from when he got started in the industry all the way up to his tragic death — including his time in prison as well as his time at Death Row Records.

Demetrius Shipp Jr. will play Tupac while The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira will play Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur — who is actually executive producing the movie. Benny Boom is directing.
