Nick Cannon went hard in the paint to land the coveted role of late, legendary comedian Richard Pryor in the Oprah Winfrey-produced biopic to be directed by acclaimed filmmaker Lee Daniels.
Cannon gave it a good ride, but Winfrey and Daniels decided on another comedian to portray the iconic laugh-producer:
His name is Mike Epps.
Oprah shared on social media that Epps was indeed the man for the job.
What do you think of Epps playing the role? Do you think that he can pull it off?
