Why am I worried about Lil Mama fucking up this TLC biopic…why?
I already mentioned my shock and horror when the news was first released about the midget MC being cast, but the fear hasn’t subsided AT ALL.
Even with the released “VH1’s first look” picture (above), where they made Drew Sidora slightly resemble Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Keke Palmer look like Chilli’s long lost little sister, I’m still concerned about Left Eye’s “look-a-like.”
Do they look like the spitting image of TLC? Not exactly. But it’s the acting I’m more worried about, and sometimes it only takes one BAD actor to ruin an entire movie or show.
Let’s hope this isn’t the case with VH1’s television biopic Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story.
The biopic (which isn’t set to air until the Fall) is supposed to follow the rise of the R&B pop trio during the 90’s, up until the horrible death of Lisa Lopez in 2002.
Thank the LAWD Tionne and Rozanda are serving as consulting producers of the show to make sure the people at VH1 don’t totally fuck it up for the fans.
More importantly, let’s hope and pray this isn’t a let down. There’s a lot of buzz surrounding this TV biopic, but nothing REALLY good has been said about it. I’ve seen the uploaded pictures, the cast list (psst, Cole from Martin is playing L.A. Reid), heard the hype…but no guarantee that it will be worth watching.
I don’t expect an Oscar worthy performance from the cast, but I at least want to be able to sit through it without cringing or rolling my eyes.
But Lil Mama has “FUCK UP’ written all over her face and looks like she’s fittin’ to shit on this biopic with terrible acting skills and whatever the fuck that face is she’s making in the picture at the top of the page.
I hope I’m wrong on this one guys!
