USA Networks is another of those stations I have had bias against mainly due to my loyalty to HBO in the late ’90s and early ’00s, but once Mr. Robot hit and I realized how genius of a show it is (even though the creator may be from a different planet), I have been waiting for another solid hit from USA, and we may finally have one.

USA has set some very strong actors to portray characters in its upcoming Unsolved TV series, which will inspect and delve into the surrounding mystery behind rappers Tupac Shakur’s and Biggie Smalls’ untimely deaths. Check this extraordinary cast out: Bokeem Woodbine, Josh Duhamel, and Jimmi Simpson will all be playing integral detectives that were involved in trying to deduce the surroundings of the murders of these two legendary music figures.

Woodbine is best known as Mike Milligan from Fargo Season 2, Duhamel is known from Transformers, and Simpson most recently played William from Westworld. What a combination of actors we have here,and I can promise I will be there hour one.

I must confess, I just changed my Poweramp on my Sammy from Cannibal Corpse’s “Evisceration Plague” to Passafire’s “Unfamiliar,” so my musical tastes are varied. Growing up, as your stereotypical suburban white boy, I loved Tupac (never got into Biggie much) and it sucked for me when he was gunned down. I was always a big fan of Three 6 Mafia though. Either way, I think this show will OWN.

What are your thoughts? Do I have odd music tastes? Will Woodbine, Simpson, and Duhamel be GREAT in this show? Would love to hear about your opinions on Biggie, Tupac, and your current musical tastes.
