    1. I guess Mike Epps agreed to the threesome with Oprah and Lee… That’s Hollywood for you….

        • Yes! That’s how hollywood works. You have to f*ck, suck and swallow to get a movie role. Have you ever heard of the casting couch? Have you ever heard of the eyes wide shut parties? If you don’t think the casting couch happens, ask Halle Crazy, I mean Berry!

      • YOU AREDYKNOW THE GONNA ADD SOME HOMO GENTRIFICATION TO PRYOR PAST I KNOW IT CUZ THAT WHAT THEY DO ..WHY ELSE WOULD THEY WANNA DO ANOTHER JOJO DANCER GTFOH HARPO ..YO HATE BLK MEN BYTCH, YOU JUST ADORE BLK FAGZ THOUGH,.. YOU OL BEEDY PUFFEYED 6 TOED ASHEYFOOT NEPHILIM RICH YOU!
        IM BOYCOTTING HIS ONE ..DO A MOVIE ON NAT TURNER FUK ALL THIS COMEDY BULLSHIT!
        THE JOKES ARE OVER OBAMA TRYING TO KILL US NIGGAZ ,..AND TRYING TO GET THIS WW3 THANG POPPING DONT BE DISTRACTED !!

      • Yay for Mike Epps! He is my favorite comedian of all time! I will be there to support my brotha! Love love Mike EPPS! SOOO EXTREMELY FUNNY!

    2. Epps > Nick Cannon for the Pryor role all day/any day.
      I’m not a Nick Cannon hater like most folks but him playing Richard Pryor would’ve been an outrage in my book.

      • I feel the same way. For one thing, Mike is a ‘Hood dude for real, just like Pryor was, and neither Nick Cannon nor Marlon Wayans would’ve been right for the role, something Mike himself talked about in a ‘Breakfast Club’ interview a while back. And like others have said, Oprah’s involvement is disconcerting.

    3. He’s just another sellout—-these negroes never go back n help their community
      Christmas is the only time, some give out gifts—what happens to the other 11 months..
      Another flick I won’t watch… Sick of Master Oprah n her bullshit mum self

      • what the f*ck else should he do. keep givin until he is broke again like you. I swear black people aint shit. always want hand outs. always want free shit. and always want people to feel sorry for you. cut it out

        • I’m white n I do care—-um that’s why no matter how much money black ppl earn
          They still end of broke for the most part. Check out the broke arse BB, FB, professional broke arse black ppl…
          Y’all are y’all own worse enemy. Just my two cent
          I’m from abroad n love America —hell everyone steal y’all style, clothes, music n attitudes, but hell don’t wanna be black… I’m not on here to start shit… Open a business to employ young black MALES, BLACK WOMEN WIRK THEIR ARSES OFF. sorry my termonology is correct, but u get my drift…

    4. Just like hollywood ruined the James Brown movie, they will use this movie to ruin the legacy of Richard Pryor. I told you guys before, hollywood is making these movies for a reason; to destroy, rewrite and profit off of our own history. The two sambos Lee Daniels and Oprah have no problems damaging one of our icon’s legacy for money. This is another movie I won’t see!

    5. Oprah is a sellout coon! What has she done for Southside Chicago? Has she made a comment about the murder of Michael Brown?

      • I think Oprah’s making a statement by having Iyanla Vanzant’s show tape there. Iyanla’s show airs on OWN. Heard it was very powerful.

    6. There is an incredible Pryor doc playing this month on cable. They have info only ppl who KNEW him would have in there. Not flattering but true.

    7. In my opinion, no actor alive can successfully pull off playing Richard Pryor. Mike Epps playing this role will be just as pathetic as Thandie Newton playing Condoleeza Rice! He is going to fail miserably.

    8. Why so much negativity over Mike Epps playing Richard Pryor? People complained about non blacks producing the James Brown movie. Now, black folks are producing Richard Pryor’s movie, and using a damn good actor (Mike Epps)to play him, and some of yall are still complaining. Come on folks, this is a real crab in the barrel mentality over this one.

    9. mike epps probably had to kiss/suck/f*ck lee “self hating coon” Daniel’s d*ck and ass. he had to d*ck down Hoprah wet soggy
      hammy yuck. nick cannon’s d*ck didn’t sway it but ironically he’s drugged out (soon to be ex) wife played a slave in lee Daniels movie the butler!!!

      she could of helped her (soon to be ex) out with the part geez

    10. doesn’t Lee Daniels looks like Horaph’s other pet project Tyler Perry we know how Hollywood gets down their probably butt buddies

    11. Ok we were not happy with Nick Cannon, and now everyone is complaining about Mike Epss, ( I personally think he would do a good job) so what other options are out there to make the public happy? Should a straight stand up comedian play the role or actor/comedian and who exactly do people want to play the role, I see people complaining but not giving any names for possible people to play the role………what about Katt?

    12. Another bio I won’t watch. I think Marlon Wayans would have been better. This will be effed up just like the James Brown biopic.
