Antonique Smith Will Be Playing Faith Evans In 'Notorious'

With the press release sent out last week announcing the main casting for 'Notorious', the story of Christopher 'Biggie Smalls' Wallace, it wasn't specified who would be playing the parts of Lil'Kim, Faith Evans, and Jan, who was Biggie Smalls' long-term partner and the mother of his first child.

Besides Angela Bassett as Christopher's mother Voletta Wallace, Derek Luke as Sean Combs, Anthony Mackie as Tupac Shakur and introducing Jamal Woolard as The Notorious B.I.G, it was stated that the film also stars up and coming actors Antonique Smith, Naturi Naughton, Dennis White and Julia Pace Mitchell.

I have now received credible information stating that Antonique Smith will be playing Faith, Naturi Naughton will be playing Lil' Kim, and Julia Pace Mitchell will be Jan. Also cast in the film are Darlesia Cearcy, and Ricky Smith as Hubert, who was one of Biggie Smalls' childhood friends.

Smith is best known to New Yorkers who may have seen her play Mimi in Jonathan Larson's Broadway production of Rent. Naughton is a former member of the music group 3LW who later appeared in the Broadway musical Hairspray. Mitchell has also done theater in different parts of the country. Both Smith and Naughton come from East Orange, New Jersey. Since we know the film will discuss how Biggie and Faith got together, expect some fireworks in the film once Lil'Kim enters the picture.
