The casting is done and Mike Epps has won the prized role of late, great comedian Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic.

Director Lee Daniels posted a photo of himself with Mike and Oprah Winfrey.

"And we're off... Get ready y'all for #richardpryor." Daniels wrote.

Other actors who were in the running for the role include Marlon Wayans, Jay Pharoah and Nick Cannon. Congrats to Mike, can't wait to see the film.

No word on when production starts. Do you agree with the casting choice?

I know that he can pull off the comedy, but I'm not sure if he can pull off the drama

Hopefully we wont be thinking "that's Mike Epps playing Pryor". That would be a shame as a Pryor fan. Mike Epps isnt too big of a name but just enough of one to satisfy the studio I'd imagine.

Good choice. Better than Nick Cannon that's for sure.

So glad. See this everybody would watch. Nobody would wanna see Nick Corball Cannon as the Legend. Richard might be in Hell, but he was a funny Mofo! Glad they picked the right actor.
