Eazy E Son Is Mad That He Can’t Play His Father In New NWA Biopic [Listen Now]

by

Easy E’s son is mad that he will not play his father in the highly anticipated new N.W.A. While Ice Cube will be played by his son O’Shea Jackson, Jr., Dr. Dre and Eazy-E’s offspring were not picked to play their fathers. Marcus Callender will play Dre, and Jason Mitchell will star as Eazy. TMZ reports Eazy’s son, Eric Wright Jr. aka Lil Eazy-E, is not happy he was not chosen to star as his legendary dad. “I am my father. I look like him. I sound like him,” said Lil Eazy. According to the Billboard, Eazy’s widow Tomica Wright approved of Mitchell’s selection to portray her late husband. Dre also signed off on Callender despite his own son auditioning for the role. Lil Eazy-E still plans to support Straight Outta Compton out of respect for his father’s legacy. The film is being directed by F. Gary Gray and is scheduled for release in 2015. (ViaAllHipHopNews)
