The son of the late Eazy-E is sounding off about the decision not to cast him in the role of his father in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. The role of Eazy went to up-and-coming actor Jason Mitchell.
According to TMZ.com, Lil Eazy-E says he deserves to portray his father because he not only looks like him, but also sounds like him. Playing his father is something he believes Eazy would've wanted. Even though he's not happy with the casting choice, Lil Eazy plans to throw his support behind the film as a tribute to his dad.
Ice Cube's son, O'Shea Jackson Jr., will play his father in the film, while Corey Hawkins will portray Dr. Dre. Dre's son, Curtis Young, recently revealed that he auditioned for the part of his father, but was turned down.
Straight Outta Compton will arrive in theaters on August 14, 2015.
