Danny McBride Says Kanye West Asked To Play Him In Musical Biopic

January 24, 2020 | Posted by Jeremy Lambert

– If there is ever a Kanye West musical biopic, Kanye knows exactly who should play him.

Speaking to The Guardian, McBride said, “Kanye asked me to play him in a movie of his life. That was a pretty stunning phone call to get. I don’t know why he wanted me to do it. Maybe that sense of ego I’m able to portray? I have no clue. …that was a pretty incredible day. Maybe someday we’ll make the film. Who knows?”

McBride has played over the top, egotistical genius characters in the past, so playing Kanye wouldn’t be a huge stretch. Outside of the whole race thing.

As of now, there is no Kanye musical biopic in the work. That we know of.
