Mortal Kombat‘s Mechad Brooks on playing DMX in a film

“Supergirl” and “Mortal Kombat” star Mechad Brooks says he’d be honored to play musician and actor DMX, should the opportunity arise.

DMX died April 9 at the age of 50, five days after suffering a heart attack.

The 40-year-old actor was out promoting his upcoming role in the James Wan-produced “Mortal Kombat”, out next week, telling SiriusXM’s Clay Cane he would “honored and humbled” to play the “Exit Wounds” actor in a biopic.

“Everybody talks about like, DMX is not the greatest rapper alive. I understand that. Everybody talks about Tupac. Everybody talks about Biggie. Everybody talks about Jay Z, Andre 3000, Eminem, Kendrick. Got it. But DMX spoke to me in a way that no other rapper did. DMX was our heavy metal. He was our heavy metal. And I liked Metallica, I liked Mötley Crüe, I liked that kind of stuff. I grew up with a varied taste in music, and so when I heard DMX, I was like, this is our rockstar. This is our heavy metal rockstar. So I grew up just like this [shows fingers crossed] with DMX in my ears the whole time. Listen, I would be blessed, I would honor his memory in such a way, and I would be honored and humbled, from your lips to God’s ears.. We’ll see.”

SiriusXM’s The Clay Cane Show airs 1:00-3:00 p.m. ET on SiriusXM Urban View channel 126.
