Sigel Wants Notorious B.i.g. Role

Rapper BEANIE SIGEL has joined the race to play NOTORIOUS B.I.G. in a new biopic about the slain rap superstar. Chubby reggae star Sean Kingston made it clear he was a favourite for the coveted role last month (Sep07), but now Sigel - real name Dwight Grant - has revealed he has auditioned for the part. He tells MTV News, "Who else better to play that role, man? I know how much passion I'd put into it. I know how far I would go. I would treat that like Jamie (Foxx) did Ray." Open auditions are still taking place, and the latest will happen in New York on Saturday (06Oct07).
