Rarely do big movie studios offer the opportunity to play the lead role in one of their projects to a nobody. Rarely do actors get the opportunity to portray their heroes. Well, those two rarities collide in the form of the upcoming Biggie biopic Notorious, whose producers have decided to put out an open casting call to all and everyone who think they can channel the inimitable personality of Christopher Wallace. Biggie's friends and family are behind the film, so be prepared to face some harsh judging. But this is one of the coolest ideas we've heard in a long time, so if you think you've got it, good luck!
