The Richard Pryor Biopic Finally Picks Its Richard Pryor Richar11
It’s Mike Epps! After years of rumors and months of open competition, Mike Epps has pushed his way to the front of the pack and officially landed the role of Richard Pryor in the upcoming Richard Pryor biopic. He should be pretty proud too given pretty much everyone else rumored for the role was either more famous or more buzzed about.

The announcement hasn’t been officially made by the studio, but director Lee Daniels and producer and rumored star Oprah Winfrey both tweeted / Instagramed pictures that celebrated the casting.

The Richard Pryor biopic has already gone through several producers and has had a ton of different stars linked to it. At various points, the world was pretty convinced the role was going to go to Michael B Jordan, Nick Cannon or Marlon Wayans. None of those versions ever came together, however, and according to IndieWire, Epps crushed his audition and propelled himself to the front of the pack.

Richard Pryor is arguably the greatest stand-up comedian of all-time. Worst case scenario for him, he’s a top five stand-up comedian of all-time. Perhaps more importantly, he was also an astute and clever critic of society during a time when people needed someone to speak up. As such, he’s a lot more important than for just the laughter he provided.

I don't know, I think Epps could do a good job. They could have went with worse choices...

I'm still sad he's dead. This movie better do him justice, that's all I care about.
