In the soon to be released “Straight Outta Compton,” O’Shea Jackson, Jr. plays his dad O’Shea, Sr. (Ice Cube) and looks like a clone. The Epoch Times took a look at 10 of the best, most spot on biopic performaces.


Chadwick Boseman as James Brown in Get On Up
Boseman brought James Brown to life and killed it, performing all of The Godfather of Soul's iconic moves himself. The movie also starred Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, and Nelsan Ellis.


Lou Diamond Phillips as Richie Valens in La Bamba
The performances in this movie are amazing. If you haven't seen it, shame on you. It put Lou Diamond Phillips on the map.


Angela Bassett as Tina Turner in What's Love Got To Do With It
A classic biopic, Angela Bassett is amazing, as usual. Her arms and legs are an inspiration. Jay Z is a fan of it.


Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison in The Doors
Val looks, sounds, and sings Just like Jim Morrison. He apparently even confused the real members of the band with his voice.


Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter in Walk the Line
Nominated for five Oscars and taking home Best Actress, the film was a critical success. Joaquin did all of the singing for his role as Johnny Cash, and was applauded for his voice.
