Oprah Winfrey’s been cast to play Richard Pryor’s grandmother — a cruel and abusive lady pimp — in the upcoming biopic directed by O’s pal Lee Daniels. Pryor’s widow, Jennifer, tells TMZ Oprah got hold of the script, and was desperate to play Marie Carter — the woman who raised Pryor in her brothel in Peoria, Illinois and who was known to beat him. TMZ previously reported that Mike Epps scored the Pryor role.
