Canadian actress Chattrisse Dolabaille has been selected to play rapper producer Missy Elliott in the Lifetime biopic on the late singer Aaliyah‘s life.
The Internet melted down when a similarly hued actress, Zendaya Coleman, was chosen to play Aaliyah. Coleman, who is mixed, backed out of the project when the pressure became too much to bare.
The cast of VH1′s upcoming TLC biopic joined the original TLC members, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, for the premiere of the VH1 original movie “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story”, held at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square Theatre in NYC on Tuesday.
Pictured above are L-R: Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas, Drew Sidora, Lil Mama, Keke Palmer and Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins. Rapper Lil Mama plays the late Lisa “left Eye” Lopes, Drew Sidora plays T-Boz, and KeKe Palmer plays the role of Chilli in the much-anticiapted TV movie.
