50 Cent is fired; Terry Crews is hired!

For those who think bloggers have no power, think again.

50cent For those who think bloggers have no power, think again. Recently, Sylvester Stallone cast  50 Cent to play Hale Caesar in The Expendables , a role that was originally for Forest Whittaker . Film bloggers had a conniption and said 50 would ruin the film. According to New York Magazine :

"Casting 50 Cent would irreparably damage a film whose roster already included Dolph Lundgren. Toxic bloggers that we are, we even facetiously suggested that 50's bad acting would torpedo the comeback that Rourke has worked so hard for. And then, on Saturday, Stallone called Ain't It Cool News back to report that he'd personally recast the role, and that the much-better Terry Crews will now play the part of Hale Caesar."

Well, the good news is Terry Crews is amazing so it's great to see him working. I'm sure 50 doesn't care much about losing a gig -- even though he has more celebrity feuds than hit records nowadays .
