Entertainment Professional Launches Social Media Campaign To Land Next Big Role

Actor, Ephraim Benton, Launches Tumblr Page That Takes You On A  Journey Into The Life Of Him Becoming Eazy-E.

New York, NY, July 11, 2012: Director, F. Gary Gray [Set It Off, etc.], is set to direct the film "Straight Outta Compton" based on the rap group N.W.A. including Eazy E., which created the Gangster Rap Genre in Hip Hop Music. Eazy E is known as the Godfather of gangster rap and the founder of Ruthless Records. The film is being produced by Ice Cube and Eazy E's wife. Top casting director Kim Coleman released a national open call over 2 weeks ago searching for N.W.A.  look-alikes with talent.

In response to the casting, Ephraim “Fetti” Benton, a thriving producer, actor and writer, is launching a viral social media campaign to win the role as the “Godfather of Gangsta Rap”, Eric Lynn Wright, professionally known as Eazy E… “I AM EAZY E”.  Fetti has a successful track record of raising the bar on branding and marketing himself no matter what hat he is wearing in the entertainment industry.

 On Thursday, July 12, 2012, Fetti will use tumblr to take you on a journey into his life as Eazy E. It will be detailed with some of Eazy’s famous quotes, Facebook fan page and bringing Eazy back to life through uncanny pictures of Ephraim dressed up as the legendary rapper. It will also feature a mini movie called 'Ez Duz It" was created as an audition tape that consist of multiple clips of reenacted footage of the NWA superstar’s life. Follow, engage, and reblog with him http://iameazye.tumblr.com

"In this day and age, branding yourself on social media is vital to your success. I thought I would better my chances if those responsible for the movie saw the effort, passion and sincerity I put forth as an actor. I didn't just want to leave it in my manager’s hands to just try and land me an audition." I wanted to make a risky but bold statement by public campaigning to the world for this role.
