The daughter of actress, Lynn Whitfield and the late director, Brian Gibson, Grace Gibson will be playing R&B singer Faith Evans, the wife of the Notorious BIG, in the Benny Boom directed Tupac Shakur biopic, “All Eyez On Me.”
Jamal Woolard, who played Biggie in the 2009 biopic Notorious, has already been cast in the role of BIG. He, of course was the former frenemy of Tupac. It was a photograph Tupac took with Faith Evans, that contributed in a large way to the conflict between the two rappers.
Faith Evans, who was the first female artist to sign with P. Diddy via his Bad Boy Entertainment, became embroiled in the East Coast v. West Coast rap rivalry and was married to Biggie Smalls at the time of his death — being shot down in a drive-by outside the Petersen Auto Museum in Los Angeles.
