Netflix’s ‘Dolemite’ Starring Eddie Murphy Open Casting Call

Casting directors are now casting actors, models, and talent to work on scenes filming in Los Angeles this summer 2018.

Eddie Murphy is about to return to the screen for the first time in awhile. He’s starring in Dolemite Is My Name. Hustle and Flow‘s Craig Brewer is directing a script by Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski.

The movie centers around the life of Rudy Ray Moore. Moore worked in a Hollywood record store in 1970 when he began hearing obscene stories of pimp and hustler named Dolemite. He started a club act where he became Dolemite. He then began generating records that mixed humor and a ghetto fantasy character, burnishing the legend. While too racy to be put on display in record stores, the records became a big inner city underground hit. The proceeds allowed Moore to finance the 1975 film Dolemite, which he starred in as a kung fu-capable pimp ghetto hero who stuck it to The Man.
