Producer Wayne Barrow has published the first ever picture of actor Jamal Woolard as Biggie Smalls in the upcoming biopic Notorious. To get a look at the actor-turned-legendary rapper, check out the photo below:

Jamal Woolard as The Notorious B.I.G.

Producer Barrow stated on his blog:

We cast Jamal Woolard in the role of B.I.G.. Although Jamal has a bit of history of his own in the music industry, he is still relatively unknown, which we thought was an integral element in filling the role. Jamal, a Brooklyn native, has been working hard to capture the spirit of Christopher's character, the soul of the man. We are extremely excited about our choice of casting, his natural charm and charismatic demeanor is very reminiscent of B.I.G and we look forward to sharing this ride with him...

I'm gonna sign off now, but will return soon...
