VH1 Casts Lil Mama As Left Eye in TLC Movie

VH1 has found its TLC in Keke Palmer, Lil Mama, and Drew Sidora, who have been cast in the upcoming made-for-TV biopic about the iconic nineties trio, the network announced today. Palmer, who broke out in 2006's Akeelah and the Bee and then starred in Nickelodeon's True Jackson, will play Chilli; singer, rapper, and judge on America's Best Dance Crew Lil Mama will play Left Eye; and Sidora, who co-starred in Step Up, will play T-Boz. Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story starts filming next month, and we'll be listening to "Creep" pretty much on repeat until this movie comes out.
