50 Cent Delves Into Method Acting

Hmm. Maybe Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has a future in acting after all. The recently released images of the rapper-turned-actor showcase a grisly sight. 50 reportedly dropped 54lbs on liquid dieting and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks for his upcoming role in Things Fall Apart.

“In [THINGS FALL APART] 50 Cent plays a football player diagnosed with cancer. He dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks. ‘I was starving.’ Now he’s back on tour and says, ‘I’ve been eating. I’ll be back in shape in no time!'”

He’s obviously dedicated himself to this role and if he can pull a strong performance, I smell awards with his name on them come next year. Hit the jump for another image.
