50 Cent has been honing his acting chops for years, working with coaches and learning as much as he can from co-stars like Robert De Niro, Terrence Howard and Al Pacino. In fact, he’s so serious that he won’t star in a film with a bunch of other rappers.
He tells VIBE magazine, “It’s not my job to lend credibility to so-and-so rapper who’s just coming into the business.”
It's a plan that seems to be working, as 50 currently has a slate of films in development – including Setup with Bruce Willis, Lives of the Saints with Meg Ryan and Freelancers with Forest Whitaker.
