50 Cent To Shed a Few Pounds

Posted by Media Outrage on February 23, 2010

50 Cent has to get rid of 60 pounds for a new movie role:

50 Cent will drastically change his image for his new role in the upcoming movie Things Fall Apart, which is being produced through his Cheetah Vision Films.

The movie centers around 50 Cent’s character, a football star who is suffering from cancer during his senior year in college.

In order to accurately portray the role, 50 Cent will shed over 60 pounds from his muscular physique, which he has prominently displayed in numerous photographs and album covers.

“Fifty is in the process of losing 65 pounds” for the role,” the film’s co-producer, Randall Emmett told Daily Variety.

Mario Van Peebles has signed on to direct Things Fall Apart, which also stars Van Peebles, Lynn Whitfield, comedian Mike P and Steve Eastin.

Before he sheds the pounds, 50 Cent will tour Europe to promote his latest album Before I Self Destruct. The tour kicks off tomorrow (February 23) in Berlin, Germany.

    LOVES me some 50. He’s a smart business man, everybody knows you can’t rap forever. Congrats to him making major moves outside of music.

    I like 50.

    His body is sick.

    If this is based on the Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe then wow. And with Mario directing this will be interesting. 🙂

    Some people can never be satisfied. The man turned his life into something positive. The haters should look in the mirror & ask what have I done to better my life. ):
