Casting details leaked about TLC biopic
Girl group TLC led the way for other women-only acts like Destiny's Child in the 1990s. TLC's influence was so strong that VH1 had decided to film a biopic showcasing their rise to fame and the tragic events that followed. On November 26, 2012, the TV networkÂ sent out a press release looking for people to audition for the parts of group membersÂ T-Boz, Chilli andÂ Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez.
Though the secret of who will be playing each woman has been kept under wraps, the person set to play Left Eye was recently leaked. According to Hip Hollywood, rapper Lil' Mama, best known for her hit song "Lip Gloss," has been cast to play the MC of the group.Â
Left Eye was tragically killed in a car accident in 2002, so the surviving group members,Â Chilli and T-Boz, are working as consultants and producers on the filmÂ to ensure Left Eye is portrayed accurately. Despite the fact that Lil' Mama is excited to take on the role, she isn't the person who leaked the information. Instead, it was legendary hip hop star MC LyteÂ who let the cat out of the bag.
"I don't know if I'm supposed to say, but I will, she just got the role of Left Eye in TLC's new movie," Lyte told the news source. "So I am just so excited for her."
Do you think Lil' Mama is a good choice for Left Eye? Who do you think will play Chilli and T-Boz?
