Nick Cannon To Play Richard Pryor in Biopic

By  |  0 Comments

In case you’ve been wondering why Nick Cannon has grown an afro, it looks like it’s because he is playing iconic comedia Richard Pryor in a biopic.  However, some of the Pryor family is less than satisfied with Cannon as a choice to play the late, great comedian.

The rumored Lee Daniel’s flick is said to chronicle the comedians life on and off the stage. His children Richard Pryor, Jr. and Rain Pryor would allegedly rather have Marlon Wayans portray their father according to reports.  As of now, neither child has been consulted when it comes to the film’s production, but their stepmother has which they believe will skew their father’s story.

Nick Cannon has yet to comment on the brewing controversy.
