George Lucas had Tupac Shakur in Mind for Mace Windu?
During an interview former Chief Engineer of Death Row Records, Rick Clifford, gave an account that the deceased rapper actually read for the part of Mace Windu back in '96. Hit the jump for details!
Over at 2PacForumChannel, there are a ton of untold stories and info about the late rapper's life including this bit about Tupac's involvement in the Star Wars franchise before he passed away.
Clifford had this to say...
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. He was telling me that he was suppose to read for [George Lucas]. They wanted him to be a Jedi... Samuel L. got Tupac's part... He called me 'Old Man'. He said 'Old Man keep your fingers crossed, I got three movies coming up. One of them I gotta read for George Lucas'.
Do you think Tupac Shakur would have made a better Mace Windu than Samuel L. Jackson?
Tupac Amaru Shakur, also known by his stage names 2Pac and briefly as Makaveli, was an American rapper and actor. Shakur has sold over 75 million albums worldwide as of 2010, making him one of the best-selling music artists in the world
