As the VH1 biopic about mega trio TLC, Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story, gets underway, the cast continues to grow.

Deadline.com announces that Diana Ross' son, 24-year-old actor Evan Ross, has been chosen to play producer Dallas Austin, TLC’s longtime producer and ex-boyfriend of Rozonda “Chili” Thomas, played by Keke Palmer.
