The real T-Boz shared the above (full photo with comparison below) image on Instagram yesterday, with the caption:
Your first real look (although the image is not crisp enough) at the cast all made up to look like the characters they’re playing in VH1’s biopic on pop/hip hop/R&B group TLC, which is currently shooting.
In the telepic, Keke Palmer is Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, Drew Sidora is Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and and Lil’ Mama is playing the late Lisa “Left Eye“ Lopes.
Evan Ross was cast as Dallas Austin, and Donny Boaz will play TLC’s manager Bill Diggins.
Carl Anthony Payne II is playing Antonio ‘L.A.‘ Reid and Rochelle Aytes was cast as Perri ‘Pebbles‘ Reid.
Charles Stone III (Drumline, Paid in Full, Mr. 3000) is directing, from a script penned by screenwriter Kate Lanier (What’s Love Got To Do With It, Set it Off, Beauty Shop).
The two surviving members of the group, Chilli and T-Boz, are acting as consultants and executive producers for the movie.
Also executive producing are the real Bill Diggins, as well as Maggie Malina, Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes and Alexander A. Motlagh.
Check out the split image below, comparing the real with the actors.
