NEWS: Beanie Sigel Wants To Play Biggie

Maybe that's why he's been gaining some weight?

Beanie Sigel auditioned for the part of The Notorious B.I.G. in the upcoming biopic and says he is the best man for the job. He seems to e heavily campaigning for the part.

"Yeah," Beanie smiled, while sitting in the Def Jam offices on Tuesday, describing what inspired him to go out for the part. "The fact that I'm a huge Big fan from the gate is why I did it.

"Then taking myself outside of myself and looking back, who else better to play that role, man?" he added. "That's not me being biased or tooting my own horn.

I know how much passion I'd put into it. I know how far I would go. I would treat that like Jamie [Foxx] did 'Ray.' You know how they say in Hollywood; 'Don't call us, we'll call you.' We'll see. But if I was to get it, I'd love it."
