Suge Knight has signed on to star in a movie as himself in a movie that ironically ties into his own real life story and focuses on the murders of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.
“Rampart Scandal,” which Stallone is writing, directing and starring in, added Knight to the cast to give the movie a more realistic feel.
Stallone will play Russell Poole, who broke the Rampart Scandal story and the theory that Knight may have played a role in the murder of Shakur and B.I.G.
Stallone said that he casted Knight to give him the opportunity to answer questions that no one ever asked. Stallone added that Knight was doing this at the cost of his own career, negative or positive.
Knight is currently incarcerated for parole violations, after allegedly striking a parking valet outside of a Hollywood area Knight club.
In real life Knight news, a former employee went on trial this week for attempted murder, despite authorities acknowledging that the man in question, Timothy “Timmy Roo” McDonald never fired his gun, nor was a victim injured or even identified.
McDonald’s family said that charges were an attempt to get him to divulge information on his former employer, Knight.
“The police wanted Timmy to snitch on Suge Knight, to tell lies,” McDonald’s mother, Mahalia told the Los Angeles Times. “The detectives told Timmy if he didn’t play ball, they’d get him.”
Authorities said that the charges are based on an October incident, in which they claim they came across a planned drive-by shooting.
Officials claim they saw McDonald pointing a handgun out of the car window. Police said that a man on the sidewalk ducked for cover, as if he was expecting to be a recipient of the gunfire.
A driver of the car with the ironic name of Darryl “Biggie” Small noticed the deputies and sped away before shots were fired.
McDonald worked with Death Row’s security detail. his older brother, Alton McDonald was gunned down in Compton last year.
