The primary casting for the Notorious B.I.G. biopic is done.

Rapper Gravy is Biggie:

Derek Luke is Puff Daddy:

Anthony Mackie is Tupac:

and Angela Bassett is Biggie's mom:

Outside the casting of Gravy, I think they did a pretty poor job... especially in the cases of Derek Luke and Angela Bassett. The director should have pushed for no-namers.

I hope I don't end up laughing like I do every time I see Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan. That's gotta go down with the all-timers goofers, like when Burt Lancaster played Massai in Apache.
