While Ice Cube cast his son to play him in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton, the son of late member Eazy-E didn’t make the cut.
Lil Eazy-E (real name: Eric Wright Jr.) isn’t happy, telling TMZ that his father absolutely would have wanted him in the starring role. “I am my father. I look like him. I sound like him,” he said.
Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. was tapped to play his father. According to Lil Eazy, neither he nor O’Shea are seasoned actors, so why not cast both?
Dr. Dre’s son, Curtis Young, also tried out for the role of his father, but was not cast either.
Straight Outta Compton is set to hit theaters August 14, 2015.
