Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson will add a further proverbial string to his acting bow with Mario Van Peebles' (American) football drama, Things Fall Apart.
Fiddy will take the lead role of a star running back "who faces a personal tragedy as well as his own mortality while in his senior year in college."
Sounds like he may be required to actually act for this role, so it'll be interesting to see how he fares with the material.
While he's held his own in some supporting parts, it's hard to shake the memory of the dire Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
Here's hoping he proves himself as a 'proper' actor rather than forever remaining a 'rapper-turned...'
