Nick Cannon may be playing Richard Pryor in upcoming film

Recently, TMZ caught up with Nick Cannon and asked him whether he would be playing Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic.  Cannon, who has recently grown out his hair and mustache in a similar style as Pryor, posted a side-by-side photo of him and Pryor on his Instagram.  This has led the public to wonder if he plans to portray the iconic comic.

The Wild ‘N Out host told TMZ that he is preparing for the role, but since the movie isn’t in production, he didn’t want to confirm anything as of yet.

“I never want to jinx anything….all I’m saying is that I’m doing the work right now, I’m doing everything I need to do to embody it when the opportunity is right,” said Cannon.

He also revealed that he has been in talks with The Butler producer/director Lee Daniels, who is reportedly working on the film.

“I’ve definitely sat with Lee, who’s a close friend, and we’ve actually, you know, worked quite a bit on getting it right.”

Cannon also spoke with MTV and expressed why he would be a good fit for the role.  Cannon, who has been performing stand-up since he was 11, said that doing an impression of Richard Pryor was one of the first he ever learned.  He said he’s been doing extensive research on Pryor and discovering some similarities he has with him.

“Now that I am doing a lot of the research, and actually digging really deep and trying to find every piece of work that he ever laid his hands on, it’s like, ‘Oh, this is stuff that’s kind of already in me,’” Cannon explained. “Just as an actor, man, it’s things that you do to actually embody something, and figuring out people’s mannerisms…I’ve read every piece of material, every book.  And you understand that he’s definitely a complex individual.”

Although Cannon seems amped to star as the troubled actor/comedian— who died of a heart attack at age 65 after a long battle with multiple sclerosis— many Pryor fans are suggesting that actor/comedian Mike Epps would do the Pryor role justice instead of Cannon.  Epps, along with Marlon Wayans, has been rumored to be a potential candidate for the role.

Who do you think should play Richard Pryor?
