DMX TO APPEAR DIGITALLY IN HIS FINAL FILM: DMX will appear digitally in his final film, Doggmen. X's co-star Tara Reid revealed that he han't finished shooting the film before he passed in April, so he will appear digitally. She explained, "Yeah, [it’s] a movie called Doggmen. It’s his last film and it was really interesting, because he didn’t get to finish the whole film. They had to do what they did with Paul Walker (in his last Fast & Furious role). They make these facial sculptures and they put it on a face, and it looks exactly like [DMX]. It’s crazy." She continued,“It’s literally a face they make and put on. The last couple of scenes that he has to film, that will be what they are doing. It’s incredible and it looks so real. It looks just like him. So, that is how they are going to film his last scenes, and I’ll be in those scenes with him.”
