I give nick cannon props where props is due, and he is a very talented and accomplished young man, but I think mike epps would bring more life to the role as Richard Pryor.
I think Mike is a better choice than Slick Nick
Yes, mike epps is a great character actor and I think he can do the role some justice.
I like them 2 together but I remember a couple months ago Nick asked Mariah to tone it down with her clothing & dress her age…it’s said that he asked for the split
Kisha Simmons I’m praying that it’s not ex husband
He has 2 study Prior just like Jamie Foxx did for Ray & he nailed that role…we shall see..I remember Nick as Mariah’s husband lol
Absolutely……the other choice I approved of was Marlon Wayans……Nick Cannon isn’t even mentionable here……
Yes Mike Epps without a question
Not a big fan of Nick…ijs
Awsom Kingsmen White.. this will make or break him..yet I believe he will rise to the challenge. . Thank u God cuz Mike is a cool dude..an he really luv an want it..lol
