The anger of the casting of 50 Cent is understandable, but not fair. A player is only as good as his coach. If a man can communicate in one medium, he can communicate in another if his strengths are brought out and he has the support of well-wishers. So, trust me, the change of Forest Whitaker to 50 Cent AKA Curtis Jackson is a good one.

“The Expendables,” is written and will be directed by Sylvester Stallone and is about a team of mercenaries that head to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator. The movie features Jet Li, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke and now 50 Cent. 50 Cent will have big shoes to fill but this is a big step in his acting career.
I received a call, informing me that rapper, 50 CENT aka Curtis Jackson, had stepped into the role. Then Sly sent me an email regarding that casting, that I updated the story with. Well… today, I get woke up with a very enthusiastic call from Stallone, who has recast the role of Hale Caesar for a final (hopefully) time. So… who is Hale Caesar? First off – he’s 6’2 & a half” and BIG. He’s a former San Diego Charger.
FOR THE SLOW PEOPLE: I updated the post to let you know 50 Cent has been taken out the movie.
