Two relative unknown actors are going to take on one of the biggest hip hop movies in recent history.

After five years, several writers, and a picky group of writers, Universal’s N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton  is finally being made.

There were several open casting calls in Los Angeles, Chicago, Altanta and in New York. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has found actors to tackle the roles of Ice Cube, Dr. Drea and the late Eazy-E.

It is interesting to note that all of the actors had to be approved by the parties they were representing.

Ice Cube‘s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr. was selected to play a teen version of his father, after Ice Cube pushed to have his son picked.

But, classically trained actor who is said to who have on the role of Dre, is Marcus Callender. he is a alum of New York’s Shakespeare Lab at the Public Training theater. Callendar has appeared on an HBO TV pilot, Criminal Justiceand had small parts on the CBS series Blue Bloods and Elementary. 

But, what is the biggest surprise is the actor who was selected to play Eazy-E. Jason Mitchell landed the role after having an amazing audition. The New Orleans based actor, has had very small roles on Broken City and Contraband.
