Straight Outta Compton, the new N.W.A. F. Gary Gray-directed biopic, has unveiled its latest cast member: Paul Giamatti.

Despite possessing some serious acting chops, Giamatti is set to portray the legendary group's manager, Jerry Heller, and not Dr. Dre (bet he could still pull it off though...).

The star joins a cast that already includes Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Jnr. as his father, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E and Marcus Callender as Dr. Dre.

Heller's role in the life of the band was critical: he was their manager during their rise to fame but was later accused of cheating band members out of their money. He was also directly blamed for the split of the group by Ice Cube, who addressed the issue on 'No Vaseline'. The film is out on August 14th, 2015.
