It’s been a big week for Eddie Murphy fans with the all-star cast announced for Coming 2 America, but before we see Murphy and Wesley Snipes on screen together (the former Blade star will also star in the sequel), the two of them plus a roster of some of the funniest comedians and actors team up in the Rudy Ray Moore biopic, Dolemite Is My Name.
Tituss Burgess, Mike Epps, T.I., Snoop Dogg, Craig Robinson, Luenell, Michael Keegan Key and more star in “The project centers on the life of Rudy Ray Moore, who recorded the Dolemite comedy albums in the early 1970s and used the proceeds to finance the 1975 film “Dolemite,” in which he starred as a pimp and ghetto hero.”
Dolemite Is My Name will be released on Netflix and in select theaters this fall.
