50 Cent To Lose 65 Pounds For Next Movie Role

About a month after 50 Cent (born Curtis Jackson) wraps up his 28 city international excursion, which begins today (Feb. 23), G-Unit’s head honcho will commence filming a new movie project titled “Things Fall Apart.”

For the film, Fif will shed 65 pounds to fit the role of a college football star who’s been diagnosed with cancer. In addition to starring in the flick, Fif also co-wrote the screenplay and will have his film company, Cheetah Vision Films produce the project.

This is isn’t the first time Jackson shed a little weight for a movie role. Back in January of 2008, it was reported that Fif cut down some of his muscles for the role in “Streets of Blood,” a movie that placed the rapper alongside film veterans Sharon Stone and Val Kilmer.
