Mike Epps

Po’ lil Mike Epps got the shaft on the Richard Pryor movie where his performance was so highly anticipated. Word is, Eddie Murphy swooped in and is almost finished filming, but Mike believes that Pryor’s REAL wishes will still come true:

In a recent interview with Jawn Murray, when asked about Eddie portraying Richard Pryor in the upcoming biopic, Mike replied, “No disrespect, but I sat with Richard Pryor for an entire year, and he hand-picked me to play that role.” Will he ultimately play Richard in another film? “I believe that Richard’s spirit will determine that.”

Dang, Mike. We were excited to see you play a role of that caliber. No doubt Eddie will do well, but if Pryor had other plans, then they should have been taken into consideration.

    I do not think Mike Epps has the acting range to play Richard Pryor. Eddie looks nothing like Richard though. Tough all around. First!?!?!

    Eddie, doesn’t even have the same kind of humor that Mike Epps has.

    Do you have a job? You keep posting this and you probably still don’t have a wealthy man. Go take an creative writing class and come up with more ways to post that shit.

    Mike may look like richard but his comedy is no where near the brilliance of richard..Eddie will play the hell out this role.

    Eddie Murphy is funny, but he dont even look like pryor. Just like beyonce didnt look like etta james, that stuff is messed up if that was richard pryor wish.
