NICK CANNON really, really wanted to play RICHARD PRYOR in an upcoming movie based on his life, but he didn’t get the part. Instead, the producers, including OPRAH WINFREY, selected MIKE EPPS to play Pryor.
But Nick isn’t giving up yet. Now, he’s reportedly shopping his own version of Pryor’s life story to TV networks. It’s not a show . . . it’s some sort of TV special. And apparently, NBC is interested. A “source” says, quote, “Nick was devastated when he found out that he didn’t get the part . . . it’s been Nick’s dream to play Richard Pryor in a movie because he was his inspiration growing up.” We will keep you posted as it happens.
