Here’s what we’re talking about over our coffee: It’s confirmed! Mike Epps will play Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic directed by Lee Daniels. After multiple productions on the comedian were started, none have yet to be finished. For this one, Daniels will be working with The Weinstein Company to bring Pryor’s story to the big screen. Oprah Winfrey shared a photo of herself with Epps and Daniels confirming the news. It’s unclear what Oprah’s role will be, but we can’t help but get a little excited.  Even though Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj didn’t get to come together at the MTV VMA’s for a little “***Flawless Remix” action, Bey didn’t let Nicki forget their collaboration. The “Anaconda” singer let us in on what she found in her dressing room after the award show.
