Ice Cube is keeping it in the family when it comes to the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. will be playing his pops in the forthcoming West Coast flick, The Wrap reports.

Cube, who serves as an execute producer for the film alongside Dr. Dre and Eazy E’s widow Tomica Woods-Wright, convinced Universal execs to pick his son—who hasn’t acted before—even though other actors went through the audition process. Let’s see how well he does when the project officially debuts.
