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.
