The son of rapper Eazy-E is in talks to portray his late father in a planned biopic about legendary hip-hop group N.W.A..
Former group member Ice Cube is set to produce the upcoming movie, about the Compton, California natives' rise to fame in the late 1980s, his departure from the band in 1989 and its subsequent split in 1991.
Lil' Eazy-E, real name Eric Wright, Jr., admits he's desperate to portray his dad on film and insists there's a "high probability" he will be cast in the biopic.
He tells Tmz.com, "I'm the perfect man for the role. Who better to play him in the N.W.A. days? Like father, like son - no make-up needed. I know I'm just like my dad."
Wright, Jr., who was just 11 years old when his famous father died from Aids in 1995, has yet to officially audition for the part, but claims he has already been in touch with producers about the job.
N.W.A. launched the careers of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren and DJ Yella with controversial tracks like F**k Tha Police and Gangsta Gangsta.
