Nick Cannon revealed to TMZ Live that he is set to portray the king of Comedy, Richard Pryor. “Here’s the thing. There have been a lot of people out there who’ve discussed playing this role. I never want to jinx anything because you guys know how movies work. If it’s not in production, it’s not real. So all I’ll say is that I’m doing the work right now. I’m doing everything that I need to do to embody it when the opportunity is right.”
Adding fuel to the rumors was a picture he posted of himself and Pryor side-by-side of each other.
