USA is officially on the case of the unsolved murders of rap legends Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

The network is getting in the anthology series business by picking up the Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. Expected to premiere in early 2018, the true crime drama will go inside the dual investigations into the slayings of the friends-turned-rivals, who were murdered only months apart.

Newcomer Wavvy Jonez will portray Christopher Wallace a.k.a. Biggie, while Marcc Rose will once again don the bandana as Tupac. The actor proved to be a spitting image of the rapper when he had a small cameo as him in Straight Outta Compton. Also playing familiar names are Luke James as Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs and Aisha Hinds (Underground) as Biggie’s mother Voletta.

Transformers alum Josh Duhamel stars as LAPD Detective Greg Kading, whose book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of the Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations the series is loosely based on. Jimmi Simpson (Westworld), Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo), Brent Sexton (The Killing), and Jamie McShane (Bloodline) round out the cast as police officers involved in the two investigations.

Emmy-winner Anthony Hemingway (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) directed the pilot and will serve as an executive producer alongside Kading, Mark Taylor, and Kyle Long, who created the series. Source

Jimmi Simpson sat down with Gold Derby’s Matt Noble to talk about Westworld and becoming the man in black. You can view the video on their youtube channel above or go directly to the video link here. I have archived it into our video archive (using the original goldderby link) as well as archived the interview on their site into our press archive. Screen Captures will be added very soon have been added to the gallery here.

“Often we just resorted to ‘that’s what she said’ jokes and everybody would laugh for a solid 30 seconds because we were exhausted” reveals Jimmi Simpson about how things were kept light on the set of “Westworld.” In our recent webchat (watch the exclusive video above), he adds, “That’s all we needed. So thank you to whoever started that dumb thing cause that was so handy for a bunch of crazy, exhausted people.”

On “Westworld” Simpson plays a guest in the western-themed futuristic theme park inhabited by robotic hosts. Over the course of the first season William falls in love with the park’s original host Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood). He says, “I normally come into series in very small doses for an effect. With William, it was episode three and I realized ‘all these people are waiting for me to move the story forward. Holy shit!’ That was a whole new experience.”

Charles Grinbaum on youtube uploaded a testimonial type of video of Jimmi Simpson expressing how he feels about Zenki Personal Training as well as his experiences he has had. He talks about how Zenki Dojo has a friendly vibe and how it’s clarifying working out there a couple times a week. He also talks about Tim – his personal trainer, who has become his friend. The video setting looks to be inside of Zenki Dojo, which looks very energetic and fun. If you’re in the Los Feliz, California area and like working out in a friendly environment, you should really check it out. Their official site is located here and you can read more about the staff here. I have added screen captures from the video to our gallery and featured the video in our video archive.

I have changed the designs on the main site and the photo archive. The headers were designed by the amazing Carol from Sin21 Designs. I kept the coding similar to the previous one that I had coded because I wanted to keep the style, but change it up to match the amazing header that Carol had designed. The theme features the recent phenomenal photo session that Jimmi had with theImagista. I really hope you all enjoy the new themes and if you have any issues, please let me know via twitter or email.

The link in his bio on instagram links to the original source which can be found here.

Read The Full Interview/See Full Photoshoot At The Imagista Site

Imagista: How did you get your start in acting?

Jimmi Simpson: I went to get my English Degree and I took a theater course my Junior year and you know, I had great teachers who just opened my eyes to seeing that some people pursue this as professions which I did not realize, I had never met an actor growing up. I thought to myself “Hey! Maybe I can have a 9-5 job and do some plays at night” and that was kind of the plan. An agent eventually saw me doing some stand up and from there I was auditioning for things like NYPD Blue in the late 90’s. I got a lucky break as a little weird skinny kid, in the movie Loser, which not many people saw. However, just being in a featured film, means you get to go on auditions a little bit longer before they give up on you. That is all it is, I had a couple lucky breaks and I worked and trained really hard. You gotta have those three, you need to work hard, be somewhat talented and get lucky and I had all three going for me and I could not be more grateful.

Imagista: How was your character on Westworld developed during filming?

JS: The arc of most characters on the show was substantial, a lot of change and growth for most characters. The creators really did a bang on job in doing so. We all were given the scripts to the scenes that we were about to shoot days and sometimes hours before filming. For William and The Man In Black in particular they really were trying to keep it hidden from us. It was just the nature of all the information, they shared it as a team, what that did for all of the actors was really let you be in the moment which was beautiful. Also, I got the hint that something was going to be up with my character, I picked up on a few cues probably earlier than when they were hoping. I asked Lisa, one of the creators, if something was going on and she just kind of looked at me and said “listen, your character arc in this series is insane and that is all I am going to say.” Even though I had an inclination, I was playing William so true that when he starts breaking from the pact and then when he breaks in a larger degree that was all happening in the moment, it was not something I was trying to build towards to work towards, how can I layer in that this was going to happen, it felt really organic to me.
