Oprah Winfrey has been cast as Richard Pryor’s grandmother, a woman rumored to be “a cruel and abusive lady pimp” in the upcoming Lee Daniels biopic reports TMZ.

According to Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor, Winfrey got her hands on the script and was desperate to play Marie Carter, as The Butler star has been anxious to display her darker, more graphic side.

Marie Carter who was known to “beat” Pryor at a young age, raised him in her brothel in Peoria, Illinois.

Winfrey will star alongside Mike Epps, who scored the role of Richard Pryor. Do you agree with Daniels’ decision to cast his friend Winfrey for the gritty role?
