Rapper 50 Cent has a new idea for himself after working very hard to establish himself as a legitimate actor. He wants to star on an episode of Glee! So get ready for a new student at McKinley High, because 50 Cent may be headed that way.
In discussing the role he envisioned on Glee, 50 Cent said,
“I probably would. Depending on what the episode was or what they had planned for it. I’m excited…I just want to work. I want to play something different. Anything other than a rapper, because I don’t feel like I’m working if I’m playing that. That’s the easy part.”
It is not so common for artists to want to challenge themselves very hard like 50 Cent is talking about. Usually an actor steps out of their comfort zone every once in a while and either shines or flops. 50 Cent wants to be removed from the rap scene in order to further establish that he does not need to fit into the role of rapper or gangster just to make it in Hollywood.
50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has already begun to break into the acting scene. Since 2005 he has starred in movies opposite Robert DeNiro and Bruce Willis.
50 Cent was ranked as the sixth-best artist of the 2000′s by Billboard magazine. The magazine also ranked him as the fourth top male artist and as the third top rapper behind Eminem and Nelly. Billboard magazine also ranked him as the sixth best and most successful Hot 100 Artist of the 2000′sand as the number one rap artist of the 2000′s. Forbes Magazine has ranked 50 Cent in the top three of the richest rappers consistently for the last five years.
