Jason Mitchell Lands New Role

While Jason Mitchell is still riding the wave of Straight Outta Compton’s success, he has his eyes set for the future. He is currently sealing a deal to star in Kong: Skull Island.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor, who played Eazy-E in the N.W.A. biopic, is negotiating with the filmmakers. And he will once again share the camera with his Straight Outta Compton buddy Corey Hawkins, who’s already a part of the cast for the King Kong flick.

The 28-year-old will reportedly play an easy going pilot. But that’s not the only project he has lined up.

He will star alongside Zoe Kravitz in a flick titled Vincent-N-Roxxy, and he has a part in the Key & Peele comedy Keanu.
