There have been previous reports that Eazy E's son, Lil Eazy was being considered for the role of his father in an upcoming NWA biopic "Straight Outta Compton." Eazy's daughter Erin Bria Wright, also threw her hat in the ring for the role, saying it shouldn't automatically go to her brother.
"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! To be honest my father has four sons total who all resemble him in their own way, just as I have an uncanny resemblance to my father and I am a girl," Bria wrote back in October 2011. "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. 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,” which I’ve referenced in a past AllHipHop.com interview in 2007."

While it's highly doubtful that Erin will get the part, it has been confirmed by Dr. Dre himself that the children of the legendary rap group will get a shot at portraying their fathers in the upcoming film.
"We're talking about it ... we'll see what happens," Dre told TMZ when they caught up with him recently.
Do you think it's a good idea for the kids of Eazy, Dre and Ice Cube to play their famous fathers in the movie or should they consider professional actors instead?
