    Well, the guys you mentioned are actors, that’s their job.

    I’m not sayin’ he’s for sure not playing dumb [there's no way I can unquestionably know that being an outsider], but I’m jus’ sayin’ …

    He had no reason whatsoever to portray a role on a 106 & Park interview …

    Even if he’s an entertainer … He can very well answer some questions and after that drop the album, which is his piece of entertainment …

    The nigga career OVER and he ain’t ’bout to lose any money…

    cmon Hopp..

    its no secret anymore…

    rappers ARE actors (except for Common)..

    thats why Hollywood keep hiring rappers as actors… cause thats what rappers do best … act like thugs and pimps and drug dealers and tough guys… so their transition into movies is seamless..

    word to

    Tupac
    Will Smith
    Latifah
    LLCool J
    Run
    JaRule
    50
    LOnnie
    Treach
    QTip
    RZA
    Meth
    Redman
    Eminem

    i could go on and on..

  63. AmpGeez a.k.a. Smoke Greene Says:

    There’s a reason why 50′s film career hasn’t exactly taken off.

    He keeps trying to play against type instead of finding roles that’ll allow him to channel his inner villain.

    Dame should find a role for 50 in that C.R.E.A.M. movie cause he’s yet to fully embrace the bad guy role that he plays in real life.

  64. bLACK fAVRE Says:

    i cant reiterate strongly enough, how terrible Common is as an actor…

    Just Wright COULD have been an ill flick…

    but Lonnie was laughably horrible… same with Date Night… same with Shooting Aces

  65. Hopp Says:

    ” cause thats what rappers do best … act like thugs and pimps and drug dealers and tough guys… so their transition into movies is seamless.. ”

    Overstood, but don’t you think that hability is caught on by the people behind the scenes because mainly of their music and the interpretation of it on music videos ?

    I mean, directors done said Ludacris looked like he could be an actor because of his music videos.

    And, if we’re talkin’ music, in some way it could be interpretated like that.

    But than I’ll again refer you to the interview … No reason there. Whatsoever.

    Kinda speaking on that, I heard T.I. did the exact opposite on that Takers movie.

  71. Marv Says:

    Marv’s comments are mad confusing.

    ^^

    What’s so confusing about them. I am just making a point that what you see on T.V and how a dude portrays himself in music videos may not be the real HIM…

    Word to Ricky….

    That nigga a professional actor….he mad deceitful though…

    He like that white dude’s character in “Inside man”….looks you straight in the face while he lies to you….

    ROZAY!

    Waiting for that to hit BET’s Blackbuster movie nights.

    And BISD was cool, but again, it showed a more restrained Curtis.

    Where’s the guy who maniacally tortures & taunts his rap competition?

    50 needs a Nino Brown/O-Dog kinda role, where he gets to be an over the top sociopathic type.
