Ever since Ice Cube's announcement back in 2009 that he'd be producing an NWA biopic, "Straight Outta Compton," there's been little to go on save an intriguing list of potential directors (Peter Berg? Really?).

For all of you keeping track, here's another clue to bag. Eazy E's rapper son Eric Wright Jr., whose stagename is Lil' Eazy E ("Chet Haze" was taken), told TMZ he's in talks to star as his famous dad. According to the interview, there've been no formal auditions, and Wright's acting experience is limited. But c'mon! His name is Lil' Eazy E. In the bag!
