Tupac was considered for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace


Star Wars

There is no denying that Tupac was multitalented. He was one of the world’s best rappers and a pretty decent actor (Juice, Poetic Justice and Above the Rim). According to a new interview with Death Row Records’ former Chief Engineer Rick Clifford, 2Pac was set to be a Jedi too. “He said ‘Old Man, keep your fingers crossed, I got three movies coming up. One of them I gotta read for George Lucas’”, Clifford added. “They wanted him to be a Jedi. Yes, I’m serious. Samuel L. got Tupac’s part.” It seems Shakur, who studied acting at the Baltimore School For The Arts before becoming a music star, would have played Mace Windu, a Jedi Master on the High Council. Lucas has yet to comment on the statement.
