Casting for the movie includes Roshon Fegan aka ROSHON, who gets the honor of playing Bobby Debarge. A singer and actor, Roshon has released several singles and has made several television appearances over his career. He’s most known for his role as Ty Blue on Disney channel’s ‘Shake It Up‘.

Debarge also had some demons of his own trying to fight his drug addiction along with an addition to sex, which later caught up with him as he died of AIDS as a result.
TV One originally planned to do a biopic on the entire DeBarge family, releasing details in 2017 about the project. The project was eventually delayed and we now have The Bobby Debarge Story.
