Actors To Play Dr. Dre, Eazy E and Ice Cube In NWA Movie Are Revealed (PICS)

(AllHipHop News) 25 years ago, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E and Ice Cube were three of the central figures of the inaugural movement of gangster rap that was N.W.A. Today (June 16th) after five years of planning and delays, the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton finally has confirmed their first actors for the roles of the three N.W.A. leaders.

Reports surfaced that Marcus Callendar will play Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell will play Eazy-E and in accordance with Cube’s wishes, his son O’Shea Jackson Jr. will play Ice Cube in the film. Dr. Dre originally desired for Michael B Jordan to play him, however Jordan’s upcoming filming of The Fantastic Four movie conflicted.

Jackson Jr and Callendar have never starred in a film and Mitchell starring in four films from 2011-2013 with 2012’s Mark Walberg-led film Contraband being his biggest role.

Check out pictures of the three actors set to play Dr. Dre, Eazy E and Ice Cube:

    Ab-Soul (set to play Eazy E)

  • TheAkademik

    Thats a wack Dre, Eazy might be straight, and I hope Dre son can act

  • water_ur_seeds

    No Lil Eazy???

    • 7yoyo7

      Even Method man said that they should pick Lil Eazy, ni99a looks just like his father.

      • smh… to be an actor you need to be able to ACT!!!!

      • 7yoyo7

        Have you ever seen Ice Cube’s son in a movie? No…
        They picked him for his resemblance to his father. No need to get your periods.

      • No thats why its a terrible choice. he only got hired because his dad is involved in the process

    • Marekso

      I remember him being too masculine, his body was too bog for playng Eazy…I wouldn’t like it to see him like that…maybe his body is reason, let’s wait for their statement

      • >>Hoping you’re a female.

      • water_ur_seeds

        yeah he looked like he was on roids, but he can easily slim down like 50 did for his role…

    • John Q. Public

      Looks isn’t everything. Needa know how to actually act or its goin straight to DVD. I hope Cubes son knows how to act as well. I know he raps so im sure he has stage presence but doesn’t always transfer to movie screen.

      • water_ur_seeds

        true, but its not even acting really, he acts like his dad anyway haha but i know what your saying, i hope they atlast let him audition for the part…

    • hell no, he cant act.

      • water_ur_seeds

        you seen him act???

      • No because he hasnt acted and is not an actor. good talk

      • water_ur_seeds

        you dont know that… they should atleast give him an audition…

      • No, I do know that.

  • Dontoure Smith

    So much for that rumor Illseed reported. Katt Williams my ass. Bwahahah

    • and yo illseed was all up in the comments defending that terrible rumor ahahahahahahahahaha

      • Dontoure Smith

        Bwahaha he was!! Got all pissy with me about it too

  • BulldogCG

    Yella? Ren? what about behind the scenes dudes like LayLaw? I respect all these dudes but this will definitely only be half of the story.

    • STFUUIgnants

      the D.O.C. too, was there from the beginning, writing lyrics.

    • MR..ASS..TO..MOUTH..

      if thats the case they might as well cast the niggas from the wrecking crew and the posse.everybody cant get recognition.

      • Them WCWR ninjaz are in the movie, in one scene they are getting their haircut, while staring the barber in the eye the whole time.

  • Great candidates chosen, they all look the part

    • that makes them… great canidates? all comes down to acting skillz

  • STFUUIgnants

    Heard Drake is going to play Yella.

    • John Q. Public

      as much as I would be annoyed by that it would be a good pick for Yella

      • STFUUIgnants

        Plus it would give the movie a bonafide star and more publicity, no doubt lol, spread the rumor.

      • John Q. Public

        yea but the biggest star would be playing the least significant character. no disrespect to Yella but its true

      • STFUUIgnants

        Drake’s fans dont have to know that. Plus less screen time, means paying him less. Just use him to sell the movie. He would be in the poster and everything.

      • MR..ASS..TO..MOUTH..

        most drake fans have no clue who NWA is.i think drake would use his star power to pull some diva shit to get yella more significance in the movie tho.

    • bigdoe6

      You know what that’s not bad.

    • Ryan Cole

      Nah, Drake said he wants to be Dre from his World Class Wrecking Crew days.

  • John Q. Public

    said it before and sayin it again… Better represent for D.O.C. in the movie or it aint real. A true unsung hiphop legend who never gets his due

    • You know the DOC will be represented.

  • Executive

    Ice Cube don’t age.

    • John Q. Public

      they look like brothers don’t they. not father n son

      • Executive

        They do.

  • John Q. Public

    Seen a lot of talk saying the guy who played Jackie Robinson might get MC Ren’s part.

    Chadwick Boseman

  • wickedjones

    On that note i think I will youtube, “If it aint ruff it aint me.” MC Ren at his finest.

  • Dadon850

    I heard Donald Sterling is playing Jerry Heller.

    • Megapsycho84


    • John Q. Public

      ha… Why u gotta do Eazy’s homie like that

    I thought CB4 was the NWA movie…

    • Ryan Cole

      No, that was the Rick Ross biopic. Somehow, Chris Rock released it 13 years before Ross hit the scene.
