The Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me nabs another star of The Walking Dead!
Four days ago, Danai Gurira ('Michonne') was cast as Tupac's (played by Demetrius Shipp, Jr.) mother, Afeni Shakur. Today, Lauren Cohan, who portrays Maggie Greene on AMC's hit zombie drama, has landed the role of Tupac's mentor and first manager, Leila Steinberg.
"Steinberg was only 25 years old when she met the 17 year-old rapper Shakur who came to one of her workshops where she mentors kids to use their talent to make their lives better," reports Deadline. "She knew instantly that he was a different kind of talent and started working with him."
All Eyez On Me does not yet have a release date but The Walking Dead returns February 14 on AMC.
