Michael B. Jordan or Mehcad Brooks as Tupac Shakur

To play the title role of the sensitive provocateur, recognized as one of the greatest rappers of his generation before his untimely death at age 25, we nominate either Fruitvale Station star Jordan or Necessary Roughness actor Brooks. The latter bears a closer physical resemblace to the late great rapper, but Jordan's acting chops — and industry buzz — are unparalleled.
