Ron Cephas Jones Joins Eddie Murphy, Tituss Burgess, Wesley Snipes And More In Netflix's 'Dolemite Is My Name!'

Ron Cephas Jones has joined the cast of the Eddie Murphy starrer Dolemite is My Name!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the This Is Us and Luke Cage star joins a cast that includes Wesley Snipes, Craig Robinson, Mike Epps, Tituss Burgess and T.I. The film is directed by Craig Brewer from a script by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski.

Dolemite is My Name! is a biopic of Rudy Ray Moore, a comedian and film producer whose work often featured pimps, prostitutes, and other street-wise individuals.

His comedy inspired his famous blaxploitation movie Dolemite, which stars Moore as a pimp framed for a crime and gets back at his enemies with the help of his karate-fighting call girls.

Murphy is producing the film along with John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment.
