Notorious B.I.G.’s Son in Film Alongside Will Ferrell
The Notorious B.I.G.'s son, Christopher Jordan Wallace, is no stranger to the silver screen. After he made a debut in his late father's 2009 biopic 'Notorious,' the young actor will appear in the upcoming comedy 'Everything Must Go' alongside actor Will Ferrell.
The film follows Nick Halsey, played by Ferrell, a middle-aged, recovering alcoholic who suffers a relapse and loses his job and family. He then attempts to sell all of his possessions in an ongoing yard sale, which becomes a neighborhood spectacle. Fourteen-year-old C.J. Wallace plays the character Kenny Loftus, a neighborhood boy who befriends the struggling Ferrell and helps him through his crisis.
'Everything Must Go' was an official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010, and will see a limited U.S. release in May.
The younger Wallace is the son of the Notorious B.I.G. and his former wife, R&B singer Faith Evans. He was born in October 1996, approximately five months before his father's death in March 1997. In the 2009 movie 'Notorious,' the C.J. played the role of his father from ages 8 to 13. The film grossed over $60 million with combined theater and DVD profits.
