If you ask any current stand up comedian who would they consider as the greatest comedian of all time, almost everyone would say Richard Pryor. Pryor appealed to everyone Black, White, it doesn't matter what your background is, he connected with every one.
Well Nick Cannon will not be playing Richard Pryor in biopic but Oprah Winfrey has been casted to play the pimping grandmother of the famous comedian. This film has already made it to my must watch list.
Richard Pryor's family are not happy with Nick Cannon potentially play the role of their dad but picks Marlon Wayans for biopic. It looks as if Nick may need to fight Marlon for the approval of the family and production studio.
