Did any other actors even have a chance? Word is that Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Junior has been slated to star as the legendary rapper in the upcoming NWA movie Straight Outta Compton.
According to the The Wrap, multiple sources say that director F. Gary Gray recently made the decision, though Cube had reportedly been pushing for his son to get the role for some time.
Jackson Junior isn't the only NWA offspring looking for a little nepotism. Word is that Eazy-E's son Lil' Eazy E has also been pushing to play his father in the pic. But The Wrap reports that producers are set to give the role to an unknown actor instead.
