The TLC Biopic began filming last week and new cast members are being added everyday. I guess the producers decided to throw the idea of casting unknowns out the window because every cast member that has been added is someone relatively know? The latest famous faces are Tyler Perry actress Rochelle Aytes and Martin actor Carl Anthony Payne II.
According to TheYBF:
The casting for the upcoming VH1 biopic about TLC, now called “Crazy, Sexy Cool: The TLC Story,” seems to be shaping up quite nicely. Two other high profiles role in the film have recently been cast. Actor Carl Anthony Payne II, best known for his hilarious portrayal of Cole on “Martin” (and Cocroach on the Cosby show) has joined the cast as record executive Antonio “LA” Reid.
Meanwhile, former “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” and “Diary of A Mad Black Woman,” star Rochelle Aytes has been cast as LA Reid’s ex-wife and former TLC manager Peri “Pebbles” Reid. Rochelle, who’s currently starring in the ABC series “Mistresses” joins Evan Ross as Dallas Austin, Lil Mama as the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, Keke Palmer as Rozonda “Chili” Thomas, and Drew Sidora as Tionna “T-Boz” Watkins.
