Tyson Beckford and Robert Richard

The Internet is buzzing about former rapper Romeo Miller losing his leading role in the ‘Chocolate City’ movie to suspect actor Robert Ri’chard, pictured at right with actor Tyson Beckford. As the title suggests, Chocolate City is about male strippers who make a living taking it all off — usually for other men. The movie also stars Vivica A. Fox, Carmen Electra, Gloria Govan and Ginuwine.

Allegedly, Miller was kicked to the curb since he couldn’t quite get the required dance moves down. Basically, he doesn’t have that male stripper edge.

But Ri’chard — as his replacement — has the right stuff to play the male lead in what is already considered the black version of the popular film, “Magic Mike,” reports AlwaysAList.

Ri’chard previously starred on Nickelodeon show “Cousin Skeeter” and then, became hot stuff on “One on One” and “Meet the Browns.”
Now he’ll star as a young college student named Devin who is sucked into the world of exotic dancing in order to pay bills.
