Posted by at 1:10 pm on September 11, 2019

Netflix has released a brand new featurette for their upcoming biographical comedy Dolemite is My Name starring Eddie Murphy as the titular comedian. Featuring the cast talking about Rudy Ray Moore’s influence and contribution to the Black community during 1970s Hollywood.

The film is based on the life of Rudy Ray Moore, the comedian well-known for his raunchy, X-rated stand up that he also infused with rapping and rhythm, earning him the nickname Godfather of Rap. Moore also became popular for his creation of the character Dolemite in his stand-up routines that, after five years of performing as the urban hero, he decided to bring him to the big screen with the 1975 movie of the same name.

The upcoming biopic, directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow) and written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood, The People vs O.J. Simpson), will see Murphy portray Moore.

Dolemite is My Name had its world premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival. The film will have its theatrical release in select theaters on October 4 and it will be available for streaming on October 25.
