Eazy-E's son, Eric Wright Jr, has discussed that he will likely play his father in an upcoming biopic about 90's rap group NWA. The biopic will be titled "Straight Outta Compton".
However, Eazy's daughter, Erin Bria Wright (you might remember her episode of "Sweet 16"), released a statement to AOL's Black Voices indicating that she thinks that she's more qualified for the role:
"I feel the role of my dad in a biopic should “Not” just be a “given” to my brother Lil Eazy solely on the strength that he is my father’s junior! To be honest my father has four sons total who all resemble him in their own way, just as I have an uncanny resemblance to my father and I am a girl. I think my brother should have to audition and earn the role by delivering a great read instead of just being handed the role—and I’d like to add that I feel I should have that same opportunity to audition for the role as well, and be given equal consideration based on my acting ability and not just my relation. I have dreamed of getting this role for many years now, as I have always been inspired by how Hilary Swank played a boy in “Boys Don’t Cry,” which I’ve referenced in a past AllHipHop.com interview in 2007."
Umm...yeah. The likelihood of Erin playing her father is slim to none! Sorry boo it just aint gone happen. But she's right that they should pick the best actor!
