A couple of big name comedians are vying for the role of 'Ol' Dirty B*stard in an upcoming film about his life.
RZA broke the news to XXL in a recent interview. According to the producer, who also happens to be ODB's cousin, both comedians have talked with him about the role.
"Eddie Griffin is down” he said. “Me and Eddie talked about it, laughed about it. Tracy Morgan, he wanna do it [too]. I said ‘Ya’ll both kinda can do it. Eddie spent time with Dirty. They knew each other well.”
The script is being written by another cousin of the late rapper, Raeshawn.
"He’s been working on it for two years now,” RZA said of Raeshawn. “[In fact] I think Eddie’s already signed on with a letter of Intent—I signed on, of course. So you know [Raeshawn] got my blessin’ to make it happen.”
Which actor/comedian do you think would be a better fit for the role?
