Mayor-for-Life Marion Barry looks to be getting the biopic treatment according to HuffPo, and the Hollywood Reporter, in a Spike Lee Joint.
And he’ll be played by Eddie Murphy.
Folks, this is not April 1st, but I’d just about swear that it was.
I’d have gone Danny Glover or Don Cheadle, myself. Or, if I was going for parody, Samuel L. Jackson. But Murphy? really? For reals?
He was actually really good in Dreamgirls.
Samuel Jackson would be awesome. Can you imagine him yelling, “Bitch set me up!”
His whole life story really needs to be an opera. I movie just won’t cut it
John Witherspoon would have been the perfect choice.
