Even rap superstars go through bad auditions some times. 50 Cent’s audition tape for 2007′s “American Gangster” has been leaked and shows the rapper trying to snag the role of a crony of drug kingpin Frank Lucas (played by Denzel Washington). In it, we see 50 attempting to cry on cue for an especially emotional moment.
Defamer, who acquired the footage, says the role ultimately went to Chiwetel Ejiofor, who is currently in the critical favorite “12 Years A Slave.”
50 Cent’s most infamous acting role is as Marcus in “Get Rich Or Die Tryin.’” According to his IMDB profile he has over 15 credits to his name and just completed another movie called “Vengeance.”
Recently, 50 took his star power to the small screen in Sundance Channel’s Dream School. The reality-based show highlights 15 high school kids with problems ranging from drug addiction to teen pregnancy. “Dream School” gives the kids the chance to finish their education with help from celebrity “mentors” like 50, Swizz Beatz and Reverend Jesse Jackson.
