Actor Playing Tupac In Biopic Looks Unbelievably Like Him In First Teaser Trailer

Tupac would have been celebrating his 45th birthday this week had he not been tragically killed back in 1996.

To celebrate his all-too-short life however, writers Ed Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft have created All Eyez On Me, a biopic about the rap legend.

As a reminder of Tupac's legacy, a teaser trailer was released on the June 16, his birthday, showing what we've all got to look forward to when the film is released in November.

It's also the first time we see actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. in full Tupac get-up and it's actually nearly impossible to tell the difference between the real life rapper and the actor...

Is Tupac actually still alive?! Nah, I ain't starting that shit. Not here. Not now.

Apparently Shipp Jr. was asked to play Tupac despite having no acting experience due to his uncanny resemblance to the rapper. He's even taken acting lessons in order to play the role.

Naturally, fans were quick to praise the trailer...

The film will focus on Tupac's career all the way and including his fatal shooting in Las Vegas in 1996. It's due for release in November.
