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."

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...
