Nick Cannon is dropping all kinds of hints that he’s about to play Richard Pryor in a new film project.
The entertainer Instagrammed the below picture of Pryor for #ThrowbackThursday with the caption, “I’m feeling his spirit. I hope y’all ready for the next level in my career. #GameChanger #Pryor.”
The “America’s Got Talent” host kept up the game Monday night by sharing the below picture of Pryor smoking, and suggesting he is imitating the bad habit to get into character, writing, “Picking up smoking cigarettes for the next few months so forgive me if I smell
like an ashtray. #KidsDontTryThis #CancerSticksSuck #AnythingForTheCraft #HopeIDontGetAddicted #LeftHandChainSmoking #ActorLife #NotAGame #Ncredible.”
Cannon has not given any further details about the project.
Director Lee Daniels has previously been attached to a potential Richard Pryor biopic, with Eddie Murphy and Michael B. Jordan rumored to be in the running for the role.
Do you think Nick is the right fit for the role? Who else would you like to see?
