Eminem To Play Himself In Film

Bad boy rapper EMINEM's first movie role looks likely to be loosely based on his life.

Film producer BRIAN GRAZER, best know for his work on THE NUTTY PROFESSOR and THE GRINCH, has announced that he has cast the STAN hitmaker in a film based around the rapper's life. He says, "It's a PURPLE RAIN kind of movie," he said, referring to PRINCE's semi-autographical movie debut in 1984. No word yet on when filming is due to begin.

Eminem seems intent on movie stardom, as he is also considering a role in the film LAZARUS, alongside DMX. (PDD/WNWCM/RP)
