With two superstar parents, it is no surprise that C.J. Wallace is making his mark in the acting world.
The son of Faith Evans and the late Notorious B.I.G. made his big screen debut in Notorious playing his father and now he is jumping into television.
C.J. will star in MTV’s television series Scream where he will portray “Amir”, a good kid with strict parents who disapprove of him pursuing a music career and of course, a new target for the masked killer.
It is Scream after all.
In April, MTV announced that the series will be going in a different direction with a whole new cast and additions to the executive producing team, which now includes Queen Latifah of Flavor Unit Entertainment.
Rapper Tyga will star alongside C.J. in his first series-regular role as “Jamal”, the step-brother to the main character of the show, “Deion Elliot”.
The series reboot will return to MTV for its third season in March 2018.
