The streaming company has acquired rights to the best-selling series of books A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket, with plans to adapt them as a live-action series. The hunt began for actors that could play the roles of the misfortunate children who face nightmarish trials and tribulations. A Netflix spokesman told Dumbuzzfeed that Suge Knight was an obvious choice, “We wanted somebody who could understand the emotional starting point of these characters, who could empathize at a deep level and act as such. It’s not every day that you find an actor who has experienced the amount of “unforeseeable accidents” as Mr. Knight.”
According to Suge Knight’s legal counsel we are not technically allowed to call them “accidents”.
