50 Cent Lands New Movie Role in Melissa McCarthy’s “Spy”



Curtis50 Cent” Jackson has scored another movie role to add to his growing resume. The rapper-turned-actor is expected to star in the upcoming action comedy, Spy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jackson will play himself in the Paul Feig-directed film, which will also feature Melissa McCarthy, who portrays a CIA agent entering the field for the first time.

50 will be joined by an all-star cast including Jude Law, Nia Long, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, and Bobby Cannavale. The flick begins shooting this month in Budapest.

“I be hustling like a motherf**ker right. LMAO THIS IS A BIG ONE,” tweeted 50 on Tuesday.

The rapper’s film credits include last year’s Escape Plan, where he appeared alongside Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as the recently wrapped the crime film The Prince, starring Bruce Willis and John Cusack.

50’s long-awaited album, Animal Ambition, will arrive on June 3.
