Mike Epps has signed on to play Richard Pryor in the Nina Simone biopic.

He’ll play Pryor in the early 1960s when he used to open for her at the start of both of their careers.

Filming for ‘Nina’ begins this week in L.A. with Zoe Saldana playing Nina. Source

I’m not a huge Mike Epps fan, but I think he might actually do a good job on this.  What do you all think?
