MIKE EPPS CAST AS RICHARD PRYOR IN LEE DANIELS' BIOPIC


By that, I don't mean that this film's gonna be called 'Lee Daniels' Biopic', though he's bound to get around to using that title at some stage in his career. Here's to hoping that his portrait of Richard Pryor will be better than his one of some fictionalised version of some butler cos it was shit. Funnily, though perhaps putting this casting choice into clear perspective, Mike Epps, who played Pryor in Cynthia Mort's yet-to-be-released Nina Simone biopic Nina, starring Zoe Saldana, will also play Pryor in Lee Daniels' upcoming film about him. I take it he's pretty good in the role then, and reports seem to confirm that.
