Pryor Jr. sat down with Daily Mail for an interview and explained how Cannon proved he could play is dad.  Here’s a look at what he had to say:

He did the small thing of using his left hand instead of his right hand, he picked up smoking to try and emulate my dad, he’s let his hair grow out. He’s looking into who my dad really was, looking into his childhood, who he was raised by and around, and he is interested in talking to me about who my dad was.

In the meantime, just because Nick Cannon got Jr.’s stamp of approval, doesn’t mean he’s officially got the lead role for the yet-to-be tittle Richard Pryor biopic.  Find out why.  Listen below to Tha Wire and get all the details.
