Eazy-E's son says there's a "high probability" he'll play his famous father in an upcoming Hollywood movie about the legendary rap group N.W.A... The 27-year-old -- who's trained with an acting coach in the past -- tells us he's already been in contact with the movie producers... but he has yet to formally audition for the gig. Wright was only 11 years old when Eazy died back in 1995 -- but he tells us, "I know I'm just like my dad."

From a TMZ exclusive, speaking with Eric Wright Jr., aka Lil' Eazy-E, posted earlier today. He's of course talking about the NWA biopic John Singleton, F. Gary Gray, Craig Brewer, and Peter Berg are on the short list to direct.

Lil' Eazy-E doesn't have any previous professional acting experience according to IMDB anyway. But good luck to you sir...

    Well I say a lot of these rappers don,t have any type of talent other than tupac, will smith, cube, ice tea, Mos Def, & Queen Latifa to go into acting, How About Using some Trained ACTORS!!!!, Hip-Hop Needs to stay in it,s place, & leave evrything else alone

    I wonder if Lil Eazy-E has tried to anything other than attempting be a replica of his father? A few years back I saw him on the Hip Hop Honors show rapping. It was less than impressive. Now he thinks he's a shoe in to play his father because "I'm just like my dad." I hope that one day he carves out his own path and finds some measure of success being himself.

    Bad idea, they should get someone who has already been proven to ACTUALLY ACT!
