Fox Searchlight apparently is desperate to find its Notorious B.I.G., because the movie studio is not only still collecting audition tapes from would-be Biggie Smalls and testing out actual rappers, it’s also holding an “in-person casting call” at 10 a.m. on Saturday in Manhattan.

This begs the question: Why not scrap the plan for a flesh-and-blood actor to play the lead in Notorious, and simply go with computer animation? I mean, if fuckin’ Beowulf can be animated, why not Biggie?
