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'.
