Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has joined the cast of “Spy,” director Paul Feig’s comedy starring Nia Long and Melissa McCarthy.
McCarthy plays a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the first time. The cast also includes Jude Law as a suave super spy and Jason Statham as an overconfident yet clumsy spy.
Also in the cast are Rose Byrne, British comedienne Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale and Nia Long.
It is unclear how 50 figures into the plot, but he will play himself, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
What do you think? Can 50’s acting chops hold up to these heavy hitters? What other kinds of roles would you like to see him in?
