Eazy-E And Dr. Dre Actors Cast In N.W.A. Biopic ‘Straight Outta Compton’

Who's gonna play Ice Cube? Ice Cube?  

In case you thought there was going to be an N.W.A biopic without Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, you can exhale. They will be in it, and those roles have been cast. Otherewise, it wold just be Ren and Cube sittin’ around, talkin’.

Marcus Callender is a classically trained Shakespearean actor (really) and will be signing on for the part of Dr. Dre. Jason Mitchell took a more circuitous route to get into the film. Mitchell works in a kitchen, has no acting experience, and reportedly went to an open call and just killed the audition. Joking aside, that’s a pretty interesting dichotomy between the two.

We’ll see what kind of results it yields in F. Gary Gray’s long-simmering film.
