Straight Outta Compton, the biopic about those gangsta rap icons known as N.W.A, has cast two unknowns to portray Dr. Dre and Eazy-E.
That might be a smart move, since unknown actors have no image baggage to bring to the roles and the viewer can watch as though they are seeing the real people since they have no prior history or knowledge of prior roles when seeing these new actors. The actors don't get in the way of the real people they are playing!
Marcus Callender and Jason Mitchell will play Dre and E, respectively, as per The Hollywood Reporter.
The film has been in production of some sort since 2009.
Do you want to see this film when it is done and in the multiplex or out on DVD?
