Amidala Had A Baby: 2Pac Was To Audition For ‘Star Wars’
Imagine a world where 2Pac was a Jedi. People around the Cantina, pour a little liquor out.
This from the NY Daily News:
The Force may have been stronger in Tupac Shakur than previously known.
Death Row Records’ former Chief Engineer Rick Clifford said his former collaborator was set to audition for a role in 1999’s “Star Wars: Episode I” before his death.
The New York-born Shakur was supposed to read for the part of a Jedi that later went to Samuel L. Jackson, Clifford claimed, but was gunned down in Las Vegas on Sept. 13, 1996. Shakur was just 25 at the time of his death.
“It’s sad because ‘Pac found out that I worked for Brian Austin Green. who was on ‘90210,’ then he found out I was in some movies. So we always talked about his film career and stuff,” Clifford said in the interview with 2Pac-Forum.com posted late last week.
