CASTING: Mike Epps as Richard Pryor!


I really enjoyed Mike Epps' performance as Satin in Sparkle! He surprised me because I had only seen him do comedy prior to Sparkle.

I believe Mike Epps will give another great performance as Richard Pryor. I also believe he has the look.

Something else of note:

Epps has already played Pryor in Nina (the Nina Simone travesty biopic)












I wonder if that played a role in his being cast in Lee Daniel's production. Either way I have confidence in Epps.
