Eazy-E's Son Feels Betrayed for Not Being Cast in N.W.A. Biopic
According toTMZ, Lil Eazy-EfeelsIce Cubehas betrayed the wishes of the late N.W.A. group member by casting "no-name"Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E, rather than his son.
"I am my father. I look like him. I sound like him," Lil Eazy-E told the site, explaining that his father would have wanted him in the starring role.
While Lil Eazy-E and Dr. Dre's son were both left out of the film, Cube's sonO'Shea Jackson Jr.was selected to portray his father. Lil Eazy-E argues neither he nor O'Shea are seasoned actors, so they both should have gotten the opportunity to star in the project.Despite his disappointment, Lil Easy-E said he will support the film and help promote it in his father's honor. Straight Outta Compton is due in theaters Aug. 14, 2015.
Sidebar: If Ice Cube's son gets to play Ice Cube with almost no experience they should have at least auditioned the other sons. It would have been cool to see their sons playing them.
