TLC Bipoic Gets its Full Cast


VH1’s TLC biopic finally has its full cast. Joining Lil Mama, who will play Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, will be Drew Sidora, who will take on the role on Tinonne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins and former ‘True Jackson VP’ star Keke Palmer, who will tackle the role of Rozanda ‘Chilli’ Thomas.

Lil Mama’s casting as Left Eye turned heads last week, with quite a few people complaining about the decision. To save my life I can’t imagine why. Though I don’t know whether Lil Mama can act or not, I do know that she can rap her ass off, and that alone gets a big thumbs up from me.

As for Keke and Drew, they are actresses and more than capable of handling the roles of Chilli and T-Boz. The make or break for this film will be who is writing the screenplay and who will be directing, two things VH1 hasn’t disclosed yet.


  1. Very good choices…I like Lil Mama, not to mention she can really, really sing too…Keke and Drew will do their thing…TLC will always hold an important role in history with unforgettable characters and music!

  2. I think Lil Mama is also an amazing for choice to play Left Eye. She is so talented and yet so hated in the music industry, probably because she isn’t selling negativity like so many other rappers. I hope she kills this role and opens up a whole new realm of career options for herself. Rap will never fully appreciate what she has to offer.

  3. Yea, I think Lil Mama was a great choice as well. She can rap (AND sing her ass off, better than half the chicks in the business…seriously) but she also KINDA resembles Left Eye. Hopefully her acting will be up to par.

  4. Awesome! This is a great line-up. I wish this movie much success.

  5. All beautiful and talented sisters. However, I remember Chilli saying that they would choose fresh faces, not famous people…I was looking forward to THAT! I will watch regardless because I loved TLC, but i’m just sayin…..

  6. I just found out the same person who wrote the screenplay for ‘Whats Love Got Do Do With It’ is also writing the screenplay for this film.

  7. They play too much why is little mama left eye? That’s some bull crap! Little Mama looks like a little boy! The other cast members are pretty! Lisa was pretty too! They couldn’t find another female rapper to play Lisa?

  8. These are good choices. Lil Mama will KILL the dancing. I think this will be good.
