Since the announcement of the upcoming Eddie Murphy-led Rudy Ray Moore biopic, Wesley Snipes, Craig Robinson and Mike Epps have also joined the cast of the Netflix movie.

According to  The Hollywood Reporter, “Snipes is D’Urville Martin, an arrogant actor and alcoholic who ends up directing Dolemite. Snipes leads a muscular roll call that also includes Mike Epps, Craig Robinson, Tituss Burgess and Da’Vine Joy Randolph.”

Variety reports, “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.”
