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.
