Dr. Dre’s Son Straight Outta The Casting Process

Dr. Dre's son, Curtis Young, ain't no thespian ... which is why he's cool getting passed over for his dad's part in "Straight Outta Compton." 

Our photog spotted Young at LA Live and he couldn't contain his excitement for his pop's biopic.

Seems like the guy Young was competing against was a lot better than O'Shea Jackson Jr.'s competition.
