T-Boz Talks Biopic Casting, Lil Mama: ‘It’s Not Just About Looks’

Forget about the looks. TLC member Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins says the forthcoming TLC biopic, "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" is not about who looks like who or who doesn't. It's about the acting and the chemistry.

"We had amazing chemistry, and it’s funny how great the actresses’ chemistry is together. A lot of people on Twitter said, “Oh, what about this person looking like this?” It’s not just about looks–acting chops are very important. The girls really do look close to us, but most importantly, there’s chemistry," T-Boz said in a recent sit-down with VH1.

Looking back at the filming for the pic, which premieres in October, she went on to say that she took a special interest in working with Lil Mama, who is portraying Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes.

"I feel bad for Lil Mama because Keke [Palmer] has Chilli and Drew has me, so she doesn’t have anyone to talk to her about her character," said T-Boz. "I talked to her with the others and by herself so she could understand Lisa more."
