Ice Cube's Son Reportedly Cast To Play Ice Cube In N.W.A. Movie

Reports say that O'Shea Jackson Jr., Ice Cube's son, will the play the part of Ice Cube in the upcoming film "Straight Outta Compton." The film centered around seminal gangster rap group N.W.A. is underway. It was officially confirmed in January, with F. Gary Gray enlisted as the director and movie title revealed to be the same as their debut album, "Straight Outta Compton." Casting also began in January, although we haven't heard anything about who has been tapped for the film until today. According to The Wrap, none other than Ice Cube's son, O'Shea Jackson Jr., has been cast to play the part of his father in "Straight Outta Compton." Given his resemblance to his dad, this seems like a fitting choice. Cube said in February he was trying to give O'Shea the part, "I've been trying to get that pushed along. Just wanna make sure that he's the best man for the job." Apparently Cube convinced the Universal executives that although O'Shea is new to acting, he can handle the task. Word is that Eazy-E's son was also vying for the role of his dad, however it's possible it went to an unknown actor instead. The Wrap also reports that Universal could announce the full cast by the end of the week, so we will keep you posted. Along with Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E's widow are producing "Straight Outta Compton." We will update you once the casting is confirmed by Universal.
