Even though Ice Cube cast his own son...
TMZ reports that Eazy-E's son Lil Eazy-E thinks that Ice Cube went against what his father would have wanted when he cast an unknown to play the former NWA member instead of him.
He said: "I am my father. I look like him. I sound like him."
The part that really bothers him is the fact that Ice Cube cast his own son, O'Shea Jackson Jr, to play Ice Cube. Lil Eazy thinks that if neither himself nor Jackson are experienced actors, then there's no reason not to cast them both. Dr. Dre's son also didn't get cast in the film.
Eazy-E died in 1995 from AIDS. While Lil Eazy is disappointed in the casting decision, he will support and promote the film in his father's honor.
