This is kind of…weird. Eddie Murphy is reported to be playing the late Richard Pryor in Richard Pryor: Is It Something I Said? which is being shot by Murphy’s Dreamgirls pal, Bill Condon.
Isn’t this, just, you know, strange? Like the black comedy icon of the 80s playing the black comedy icon of the 70s? It’s not going to be like seeing Pryor up there, but not really Murphy either. It’s going to be some bizarre amalgam that’s probably just going to weird me out.
In other comedy biopic news, Chris Rock has been cast to play Eddie Murphy in an upcoming 2012 release while Dave Chappelle will play Chris Rock in a film stated for 2016.
