Fresh off of leaving the NBA, Matt Barnes is dabbling in Hollywood. Over the weekend, the former NBA star announced that a new Huey Newton biopic has been green lit.

Keith Powers

It appears that Keith Powers is involved in the project. Based on the comment that Snoop Dogg made, it looks like he wants to play Newton.

Newton was an African-American political activist and revolutionary who, along with Bobby Seale, co-founded the Black Panther Party in 1966. He continued to pursue an education, eventually earning a Ph.D. in social philosophy. In 1989 he was shot and killed in Oakland, California.

    I’m glad to hear it! I am not opposed to Snoop being in the movie, but not as Huey.. I think Keith has a more similar look and could do well in the role, if that’s the plan.
