Last night Mike Epps took a break from the filming of his new series Uncle Buck to speak with The Late Late Show’s James Corden. For his time there, Epps spoke on his comedy start then ventured into Pryor talk. As he expressed how he felt going into the upcoming Richard Pryor biopic he shared that he is slightly nervous to step in such big shoes.
To play Richard Pryor is …. I’m very scared. It’s a humble scare because he was the greatest to ever do it.
The Pryor biopic with Lee Daniels is expected to begin filming this coming March.
