Eazy E's Daughter Wants Role Of Father
Eazy E's son isnt the only one who wants the role of his father in the upcoming N.W.A. movie, his 20-year-old sister Erin Bria Wright is also being vocal about playing the part of her late father.
"I have dreamed of getting this role for many years now, as I have always been inspired by how Hilary Swank played a boy in “Boys Don't Cry,” Wright said in a press release after learning of her brother's intentions to obtain the role.
"I feel the role of my dad in a biopic should “Not” just be a “given” to my brother Lil Eazy solely on the strength that he is my father's junior," she wrote.
"I think my brother should have to audition and earn the role by delivering a great read instead of just being handed the role—and I'd like to add that I feel I should have that same opportunity to audition for the role as well, and be given equal consideration based on my acting ability and not just my relation."
As recently reported, a movie about the influential West Coast rap group, N.W.A. is currently in pre-production stages.
Former member Ice Cube will serve a one of the producers for the film entitled Straight Outta Compton, while John Singleton has been tapped to direct.
