Eazy-E's son has cleared up reports suggesting he was upset he was not cast as his father in the N.W.A. biopic, insisting actor Jason Mitchell has his full support.

Eric Wright, Jr. insists comments attributed to him about his disappointment over not winning the role in Straight Outta Compton were taken out of context - and he's not mad that Ice Cube cast his own son to play a younger version of himself, while overlooking him.

He tells RollingStone.com, "I'm not upset about (the casting). What (Ice) Cube did was a great thing and (he's) a loving father... Besides my father, that's the person I was inspired by; that's like an idol to me."

Wright, Jr. goes on to explain he has made himself available to Mitchell, who will portray his late father, in a bid to help him perfect the role.

He continues, "Jason has come to my grandmother's house, where I was born and raised, where my father was born and raised and where N.W.A started. I reached out to him to give him the support and any advice he needs. He has a big burden on his shoulders, to bring forth the character and legacy of my father and the legacy of N.W.A, period."
