Meet the newcomer, who already has ties in the R&B world, and find out who’s playing Babyface and Tamar Braxton as you read on! Well it is official! Lifetime is officially gearing up to create a Toni Braxton Biopic based on the best selling biography "Unbreak my heart"! Now we know who will be starring as the R&B singer…since she said she wouldn’t be playing herself.
First of is Ms.Toni Braxton herself who will be played by newcomer (and Rico Love's Niece) Alexis "Lex Scott" Davis will be making her acting debut in the biopic.
Actress Tiffany Hines, whom you may have seen on TV shows “Devious Maids” and “Bones,” will play none other than Toni’s baby sister Tamar Braxton. Hope she has her neck roles, side-eyes and smacking her tongue down pat.
Meanwhile, Gavin Houston, who stars on “The Haves And The Have Nots,” will play Toni’s longtime friend andcollaborator Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.
Also joining the cast is Chi-town native Skye P. Marshall will play Towanda Braxton, actress Debbie Morgan will portray Toni Braxton's mother Evelyn Braxton and actress LaToya Franklyn is set to star as Trina Braxton. No word on who's playing Traci Braxton just yet.
