A trio of relatively unknown actors has been hired for the lead roles in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic. 

After more than five years, four writers and a tough-to-please trio that holds cast and script veto power, Universal's N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton is finally getting the green light.

Sources say the studio has assembled its leading threesome to tackle the roles of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and the late Eazy-E. The three parties with approval—Cube, Dre and Eazy-E's widow Tomica Wright—have signed off on the actors who will play the core members of the seminal rap group.

It's no secret that Cube has been lobbying for his son, O'Shea Jackson Jr., 23, to be cast as the teen version of his father, and it appears he got his wish.
