Eazy-E‘s son says there’s a “high probability” he’ll play his famous father in an upcoming Hollywood movie about the legendary rap group N.W.A. … telling TMZ, “I’m the perfect man for the role.”
TMZ spoke with Eric Wright Jr. — aka Lil’ Eazy-E — who told us he’s “very excited” that New Line Cinema is moving forward with the flick … which is set to be produced by Eazy’s former N.W.A. group member Ice Cube.
“Who better to play him in the N.W.A. days?” … Lil’ Eazy said … adding, “Like father, like son — no makeup needed.”
The 27-year-old — who’s trained with an acting coach in the past — tells us he’s already been in contact with the movie producers … but he has yet to formally audition for the gig.
Wright was only 11 years old when Eazy died back in 1995 — but he tells us, “I know I’m just like my dad.”
