(AllHipHop News) The highly anticipated N.W.A. biopic got one step closer to hitting theaters when part of the main cast for the film was announced. While Ice Cube will be played by his son O’Shea Jackson, Jr., Dr. Dre and Eazy-E’s offspring were not picked to play their fathers.

Marcus Callender will play Dre, and Jason Mitchell will star as Eazy. TMZ reports Eazy’s son, Eric Wright Jr. aka Lil Eazy-E, is not happy he was not chosen to star as his legendary dad.

“I am my father. I look like him. I sound like him,” said Lil Eazy.

According to the Billboard, Eazy’s widow Tomica Wright approved of Mitchell’s selection to portray her late husband. Dre also signed off on Callender despite his own son auditioning for the role.

Lil Eazy-E still plans to support Straight Outta Compton out of respect for his father’s legacy. The film is being directed by F. Gary Gray. It is scheduled for release in 2015.

    they didnt pick you because they want real actors to portray these dudes…..i still think casting cubes son was a bad idea,,,i want this to be a good movie not some CB4 shit lol…with bad acting

  • Terrance Goodman

    I thought they could have given lil e a role he is a spitting image. But hopefully it will be a won’t be a booger banger like bigs joint

  • bigdoe6

    While it makes sense for him to play the role, it’s also a good thing to use real actors as well. It’s good to see he’s still going to support the film tho.

  • Todd Garris

    He has all rights to b mad.Cube son is playing his father,lil eazy should have gotten that Role to bring his dad to light

  • hoeyuno

    I was rootin for you Lil E!! Woulda been cool to see but hopefully there decisions were based on acting abilities

  • John Q. Public

    Eazy is prolly not gunna come of so good in the movie if they keep it real

    He didn’t write any songs, and his relationship with Jerry Heller basically caused the drama and breakup of the crew.

    • BlazeA

      He wrote some of his songs… not sure about all. I know this first-hand. I was around him during some of his writing sessions.

      • John Q. Public

        Eazy E didn’t even write “Eazy Duz It” (a theme song for himself)

        basically all his and NWAs song were written by Cube, DOC, & MC Ren

        even that album he released after the NWA breakup he used ghostwriters. Wudever he wrote wasn’t much if any


    We love for Lil E, but we LOVE N.W.A even more & to make the BEST MOVIE they need the BEST ACTORS! Never seen him in any serious acting roles….. that’s what’s needed! Support STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON & congratulate N.W.A for being inducted in the IES HIP HOP HONORS last year! Great stuff!

    Just because you look like your dad doesn’t mean that you can ACT in a film about him. It seems that Cube, Dre and Eazy’s widow gave their kids a fair shot at auditioning for the parts, after that it’s on the kids if they could or could not pull it off. If Cubes son got the part that must mean that he pulled off a good audition and it makes sense. He has been around Hollywood and acting more than the other members kids because his Pops (Cube) been producing movies for his entire life.

      Cube has a little more pull in the industry than Tomica Wright. His son is as untalented as Lil Eaze, compared to their fathers.
