Aisha Hinds, LeToya Luckett & Luke James To Star In Series About The Murders Of Tupac & Biggie

March 23, 2017  |  

USA is tapping some big names for their anthology series “Unsolved: The Murders of Biggie and Tupac.”

Two-time Grammy nominee Luke James, fresh off the success of playing Johnny Gill in “The New Edition Story,” will star as Sean “Puffy” Combs.

Aisha Hinds, who is currently portraying Harriet Tubman on “Underground” and will also star in Fox’s “Shots Fired,” will take on the role of Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace. Wallace reportedly talked to her son every day before his death and has yet to stop seeking justice in his murder.

And LeToya Luckett will play Sharitha Golden, the estranged wife of Death Row records CEO Suge Knight. Golden is said to be one of the few people not intimidated by Knight in 1997.

Marcc Rose will play the role of Tupac and Wavyy Jonez will play Biggie Smalls.

The series will be based on the experiences of former LAPD Detective Greg Kading, who led several law-enforcement task forces that investigated the murders. Kading consulted on the script and will work as the co-executive producer for the pilot.

Tupac was just 25-years-old when he was shot and killed in Las Vegas in 1996. Biggie was 24-years-old when he was killed in Los Angeles, just six months later. Their murders are still, as the title of the series suggests, unsolved today.
