Actor Chosen To Play N.W.A.'s Manager Jerry Heller In Biopic Revealed

(AllHipHop News) In a bizzarro world, Ice Cube has chosen who will immortalize Paul Giamanti  in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic. Recently the actor who will play the manager of the legendary group in Straight Outta Compton was chosen.

Paul Giamatti was selected to play as Jerry Heller in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton. Paul Giamtti’s most recent role in his illustrious 15+ year career was as Aleksei Sytsevich, the Rhino in 2014’s The Amazing Spider Man 2.

Heller founded Ruthless Records and managed N.W.A. throughout their short-lived career from 1986-1991. Ice Cube left N.W.A. in 1989 after making claims that Heller was shortchanging the group on their royalty payments. On his 1991 debut album Death Certificate, Cube made his accusations explicit with lyrics from the song “No Vaseline” such as “It’s a case of divide and conquer, ’cause you let a Jew break up my crew.”

Straight Outta Compton is currently filming and is set to be released on August 14th, 2015.

    Paul is a good choice. Hes a good actor who is real good at playing slimy characters.

    • truths cause after watching Shoot Em Up & Big Fat Liar, i can see him making that Jerry Heller role work…

      • John Q. Public

        never seen either of them but he has made a ton of films. good actor.

      • you might not like Big Fat Liar too much (i didnt like it at all) but Shoot Em Up a good 1 tho if you wanna give that a watch

    • hoeyuno

      Man they have to walk on eggshells with Jerry heller…hes already been hinting hes gonna sue them if hes not happy how they portray him…

      • John Q. Public

        didn’t know he was even still alive

      • hoeyuno

        Yup and still hustlin…he manages some rock group or some ish but im thinking hes planning to sue no matter how thet portray him…I dont think cubes gonna hold back either..

  • JUSROMAN

    Man there are a lot of typos and what not in this article. First of all, Amerikkka’s Most Wanted was Cube’s debut, not Death Certificate. Second, the whole first sentence didn’t make sense. Get your shit together AHH or hand to reins over to someone who can at least proofread their shit…

    • STFUUIgnants

      Its like they typed it on their smartphone while on the toilet.

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        blindfolded!!!

    • hoeyuno

  • DC King Of Hearts

    Well…That’s a random selection

  • Arrie Mental Woodard

    Damn, get a proofreader for this site. Im sure you could hire a 7th grader for the cheap!!!! DAM!

  • *Giamatti And to say that they chose who will immortalize Paul, means they have chosen someone to play his character, not that he has been chosen. Real talk, I have no problem proofreading for yall for the low. It wouldn’t be hard, you guys barely average 15 articles a week.

    • artcryme99

      if they wanted to hire competent writers instead of their cousins they would have by now

  • El Dogga

    Man WTF is writing this stuff man???? I swear I just got a headache trying to make sense out of this!

  • Draftmane

    Real Gangsta Rap died when Eazy & Pac Died!

    • John Q. Public

      …eazy didn’t even write his own songs, prolly most overrated of all time for real

      • vandyll

        Exactly D.O.C.,and Cube, wrote a lot of his stuff

      • John Q. Public

        MC Ren too… Eazy was just the mascot

      • fasho

        wow. the man with the money putting all the shit together is now a mascot. yeah this documentary really need to come out.

      • JEM

        Eazy formed the group.

      • John Q. Public

        Eazy formed the lable Ruthless with heller, not NWA. the whole incentive to form Ruthless was to promote Boyz N tha Hood written by Ice Cube.. produced by Dre… Eazy always been the puppet of the crew

      • John Q. Public

        I will give him his respect as a cut-throat business man who started from nuthin. But in the rap game… he only has other peoples work to stand on

      • Dope

        ”he only has other peoples work to stand on” – guess it goes both metaphorically and literally that only standing on others could make him big 😀

      • mademan3000

        Glad u gave Ren his due fam and in all actuality Ren did the most writing check out the credits on S.OC. & Eazy Duz It.

  • brotha_man

    damn, my guess was Donald Sterling

    • hoeyuno

      I thought they were giving it to Rosenberg on hot 97 haha

  • Markus

    Giamatti’s strength is his ferocity on screen. It will be interesting to see him dial that back for this role. Never heard of Heller having a no nonsense type of personality so we’ll see where Giamatti goes with it.

  • Immortal

    ” Ice Cube has chosen who will immortalize Paul Giamanti in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic….. Paul Giamatti was selected to play as Jerry Heller in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton”. So did Ice Cube say who’s playing Paul?

    • Dope

      Was just about to write the same shit.. it’s like they type blindfolded.. shit, I think I’d actually make more sense typing an article blindfolded.
