VH1 has tapped Rochelle Aytes to play TLC’s former manager Perri “Pebbles” Reid in made-for-TV biopic Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story.
Despite major backlash Keke Palmer received from fans for being cast as Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, the Madea’s Family Reunion actress has agreed to play the jealous, overly demanding character.
She joins a well-rounded cast of rising actors, including Palmer, Lil Mama (Left Eye), Drew Sidora (T-Boz) and Evan Ross, who will play producer Dallas Austin. Chilli and T-Boz will both serve as executive producers on the feature.
Filming is set to take place in Atlanta beginning in March.
