When Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. premieres on Feb. 27, USA's new true crime limited series will delve into two separate LAPD investigations -- one in 1997 and one in 2006 -- into the murders of rap icons Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G.
Here's a first look at the character posters from Unsolved, starring Josh Duhamel, Jimmi Simpson, Bokeem Woodbine, Wavyy Jonez, and Marcc Rose.
JOSH DUHAMEL AS GREG KADING
Josh Duhamel (Transformers: Dark of the Moon, 11.22.63) plays Detective Greg Kading. In 2006, Kading was asked to spearhead a multi-agency task force with the sole purpose of finding out who was responsible for the murder of Christopher Wallace (AKA The Notorious B.I.G.), once and for all.
JIMMI SIMPSON AS DETECTIVE RUSSELL POOLE
Jimmi Simpson (Westworld, House of Cards) is Detective Russell Poole, who investigated the murder of Christopher Wallace, AKA The Notorious B.I.G. in 1997. During his investigation, Poole became convinced that the LAPD was covering something up.
BOKEEM WOODBINE AS OFFICER DARYN DUPREE
Bokeem Woodbine stars as Officer Daryn Dupree, whose deep knowledge of both Los Angeles gangs and the rap industry, landed him on Greg Kading’s (Josh Duhamel) task force in 2006.
WAVYY JONEZ AS CHRISTOPHER WALLACE
In his first role, Wavyy Jonez stars Christopher Wallace, AKA The Notorious B.I.G. Born and raised in Brooklyn, Wallace quickly went from honors student to small-time drug dealer to the face of East Coast rap. Wallace was shot and killed in Los Angeles just six months after his one-time friend Tupac Shakur (Marcc Rose). His murder remains unsolved.
MARCC ROSE AS TUPAC SHAKUR
Marcc Rose stars as poet, actor and legendary rapper, Tupac Shakur. As brilliant as he was self-destructive, Shakur was shot and killed in Las Vegas in 1996. His murder remains unsolved today.
