Oprah Winfrey’s been cast to play Richard Pryor’s grandmother — a cruel and abusive lady pimp — in the upcoming biopic directed by O’s pal Lee Daniels.

Pryor’s widow, Jennifer, tells TMZ … Oprah got hold of the script, and was desperate to play Marie Carter — the woman who raised Pryor in her brothel in Peoria, Illinois … and who was known to beat him. As we told you … Mike Epps scored the Pryor role. 

We’re told Oprah really wanted to play Grandma Carter because she’s anxious to show her gritty side — after her ‘Butler’ performance — and let’s face it … there’s not much grittier than an abusive grandma running a whorehouse while raising a kid.
