As we all know by now Lifetime is currently producing The Aaliyah Biopic. Since the announcement of this production, one actress dropped out and then was replaced, Aaliyah’s family blocked the use of Aaliyah’s music being used and Wendy Williams signed on as executive producer for the film. Ugggghhhhh!
Missy Elliot will be played by Chattrisse Dolabille. Timbaland will be played by Izaak Smith.
Izaak is a little seasoned in acting, he has been in a few productions. With some facial hair he just might be able to pull it off.
I also checked out Chattrisse out she only has one short film under her belt according to IMDB.com. She is very new to the business. I don’t think this role is for her. Only because she does not favor Missy and I really think Chattrisse career will be extremely short if she does not pull this role off. Shame on the casting directors for throwing this poor girl out into the trenches like this. Folks are not happy about this young lady being cast to play the hip hop legend Missy Elliot.
