Trailer: 50 Cent Stars in ‘Things Fall Apart’

50 Cent

50 Cent plays cancer-stricken football player Deon Barnes in his new film Things Fall Apart, due out later this year. You may recall the startling photos of a super skinny 50, who lost 54 pounds to take on the role. The drama was directed by Mario Van Peebles and co-stars Ray Liotta and Lynn Whitfield.

“My motivation for the project was my best friend, Charles Pringle,” the rapper-turned-actor previously told Rap-Up.com. “He lived across the street from me; he actually died of cancer.”

Get a sneak peek of Curtis Jackson tackling his most serious role yet in the “unofficial” trailer.

    Why that screenshot, though, Rap-Up? lol

    I was wondering! I was about to say something about the quality of the trailer but I went back and read that it was “unofficial”. Seems an interesting story.

    WTF, Hollywood, has a stick up their ass and everyone else who can’t give some respect for the fact 50 Cent is taking on a more serious role in his acting career. Instead of following the typical drug dealer stereo type.
