'Thug' life sounds good for HBO, Epps

(Posted September 22, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

HBO is developing a half-hour comedy titled "The Unsuccessful Thug" starring comedian Mike Epps, sources said.

The project is said to be about Epps' life and his failed attempts to hustle back in his old neighborhood, where he was deemed too funny to be a "thug."

HBO declined comment Wednesday.

Epps recently portrayed Ed Norton opposite Cedric the Entertainer as Ralph Kramden in the film "The Honeymooners," based on the classic TV show. His other film credits include "Roll Bounce," which opens Friday, and "The Fighting Temptations."
