50 Cent as 50 Cent?
50 Cent would do a great job playing a character that is stuck in a coma. In that situation, his expressionless face would be perfectly appropriate. However, to the best of my understanding, his character of Curtis Jackson (aka 50 Cent) in “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” was not in a coma. Not when dealing drugs, not when being arrested, and not when getting shot nine times (although he might have been afterwards, I don’t remember). But you’d never know that from 50’s performance, which basically consisted of a series of scowls like the one you see above. When you have this much trouble playing yourself, perhaps acting is not the career choice for you. —Jeff Royer
