According to Variety, Eddie Murphy has joined the cast as the late comedian’s father, LeRoy “Buck Carter” Pryor, a World War II vet and boxer.
Lee Daniels teased the great news via Instagram by posting a photo with Eddie with the caption, “Strap in and brace yourself. They done let me and him out of our cages! #idonteventhinkimreadyforthisone! #excited #proud #OMG”
Richard’s the one that made me want to do comedy. When I was little I used to sneak into my basement and put his albums on.
Either way…I definitely plan to check out this project when it’s released.
How about you?
