I have to give Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson credit for pursuing dramatic work. Unfortunately, that’s about all the credit I can give him because he’s not a very good actor. While I admire his dedication and physical transformation to play a cancer-stricken football player in Things Fall Apart, the trailer makes it look like a Lifetime movie (I was about to write “A bad Lifetime movie”, but realized that was redundant). I like how the trailer kicks off with a big football game and a crowd cheering in an almost-empty stadium.
I don’t want to spoil the rest of the hilarity, so check out the trailer after the jump. Things Fall Apart also stars Ray Liotta wondering how his career got to this point.
