'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."

Kid, give us all a break and climb out of the ghetto. Thug life is nothing to aspire to. If you're just like him, you're already in trouble.

His father had 7 children by 6 different women by the time he died of AIDS at age 31. I would hope his son would strive for something better than that in his life.

You need to be the opposite of your dad. Become a lawyer, always wear a condom and stay away from gangs

That's cool he gets to play his dad, date his mom and create himself all over again. It's like back to future. Harvey was right, I wouldn't want to see my son play my dad and have watch him having sex with my mom?

I think    

I think Baby Eazy/Eazy-E3 would be better to play in the N.W.A movie, but Lil Eazy-E is okay too I guess.

I Hope he is not proud of how his dad helped spead the aids around ,and I hope that they tell the truth I was 12 when he died and I remember being so embarrassed when he died because I throught that he was so fine and at the time I throught only skinny white boys took it in the ass.
