Peter Rosenberg Was Almost On "Atlanta"
Childish Gambino’s FX show has not been out for very long and it's already a smash hit. This could be one of those shows that make careers skyrocket. That is not the case for Peter Rosenberg.
The Hot 97 DJ tells the story of when he went to audition for the role of a white DJ. The same white DJ we see in the "Pilot". The thing about this role is that the actor has to say the word nigga, which Rosenberg was uncomfortable with to the point that he would not practice the scene in front of anyone else.
When he finally did audition, he was told that him saying that word was not believable, so the casting crew passed on him. Rosenberg didn't seem too upset but there's definitely a “what if?” factor there. On the bright side, this opens up the possibility of him playing himself later on down the road.
