The Walking Dead's Danai Gurira Cast As Tupac's Mom In All Eyez On Me


Danai Gurira has been bringing attitude to The Walking Dead since 2012. She has played a couple of other parts since landing the role but now she'll be commanding a heap of attention on the big screen.

The woman charged with portraying Michonne AMC's zombie drama will soon take on the part of Afeni Shakur in the Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me. The film is already underway and Gurira is joining the cast and crew in Atlanta not from The Walking Dead's set.

Gurira will have her hands full playing the complex role. Afeni Shakur, now an executive producer on the film, is a political activist and member of the Black Panthers. Afeni Shakur raised her son, one of the most iconic musicians in history, to be an avid reader with political awareness which heavily influenced his style of music.

All Eyez On Me does not yet have a release date but The Walking Dead returns February 14 on AMC.
