Legendary comedian Richard Pryor’s life is finally getting the biography treatment and leaked footage of Marlon Wayans’ audition tape have surfaced. The highly converted role went to funny man Mike Epps but here we have Marlon acting his heart out for the role. The film is set to be directed by Lee Daniels and the clip shows Wayans in what appears to be a therapy session first (opposite Omar Epps,) discussing his inner demons and why he treats his wife so bad. The second clip shows Wayans portraying Pryor on stage. Mike Epps beat out Marlon for the role and now i’m even more curious to see what Mike will do with such a sacred role. Watch the film clip below.
