The much-delayed Tupac biopic All Eyez on Me began shooting in Atlanta this week.
It was rumored that Marcc Rose, who played Pac in Straight Outta Compton, would revise the role for the biopic.
That isn't happening. Instead Demetrius Shipp Jr will be Tupac.
Shipp was chosen for his resemblance to the legend, and has little acting experience.
Jamal Woolard will be portraying The Notorious B.I.G. in the film. He was also Biggie in the 2009 biopic Notorious.
Check out some photos and videos of Shipp and Woolard done up as their famous characters, and let us know if you think they pass the eye test.
