's son says there's a "high probability" he'll play his famous father in an upcoming Hollywood movie about the legendary rap group N.W.A. ... telling TMZ, "I'm the perfect man for the role."

TMZ spoke with Eric Wright Jr. -- aka Lil' Eazy-E -- who told us he's "very excited" that New Line Cinema is moving forward with the flick ... which is set to be produced by Eazy's former N.W.A. group member Ice Cube.

"Who better to play him in the N.W.A. days?" ... Lil' Eazy said ... adding, "Like father, like son -- no makeup needed."

The 27-year-old -- who's trained with an acting coach in the past -- tells us he's already been in contact with the movie producers ... but  he has yet to formally audition for the gig. 

Wright was only 11 years old when Eazy died back in 1995 -- but he tells us, "I know I'm just like my dad."

IN MY OPINION    

Jr. You should strive to be better than your dad. I hope you're not trying to walk with his shoes.

If Ice Cube is involved it should turn out great! I hope Lil Eazy gets a shot at it!

Your dad was skinny you are fat. I guess this is your way of coming out? Your dad loved doing women as much as he loved smoking pole and taking it in the a$$.

Don't know if I am remembering correctly but, didn't Easy E die of Aids after spreading the disease to countless women and having babies with many women also? It is scary that this kid says he is like his dad.
