Nick Cannon To Portray Rick Ross In Biopic
Nick Cannon will be portraying Rick Ross on the big screen. And we’re not talking about MMG’s bawss Rozay; we mean the actual former drug trafficker Rick Ross.
Ross chose Cannon himself for the biopic to be directed by Nick Cassavetes. “I chose Nick based on a few factors. The role is 17 to 25 in age, many of our award-winning actors are much older than that range,” Ross said about Cannon in an interview with allhiphop.com. He says that Cannon is “a guy who captures my character when I was in custody in San Diego.”
The biopic will focus on the dealings of the drug world during the 80s followed by his incarceration.
