‘Friday’ funnyman Mike Epps may be constantly building his comedic resume, but recent news may see him step out of character and into that of another comedian – the legendary Richard Pryor.

A role undoubtedly eyed by many, Epps is set to portray Pryor in the forthcoming biopic ‘Nina’ based on the life of singer/songwriter/activist Nina Simone.  As headlines have revealed in the past months, the title role was awarded to ‘Colombiana’ actress Zoe Saldana (despite Mary J. Blige reportedly being a shoo in for years).

And, unlike the biopic itself (which has not received the official blessing of Simone’s family), Epps says the Pryor family’s blessing is what ultimately led him to take the role.

No official word on when the project can expect to be released.
