Originally, Forest Whitaker had been replaced by 50 Cent in Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming The Expendables. I, unfortunately, thought it was a terrible idea, because I truly hate 50 Cent as an actor and didn’t want to see him ruin what I’m hoping will be a good movie. Well, Harry at AICN is saying that Stallone has called him up again and that 50 Cent is no longer taking the role, for unknown reasons, and instead the character of “Hale Caesar” will be played by Terry Crews. I hope this is finally who Stallone sticks with in the end.
Former San Diego Charger Terry Crews has been in everything from Idiocracy to White Chicks to Balls of Fury to Street Kings to Get Smart to Terminator Salvation. Besides that last one, not the greatest selection of films, but alas, still better than 50 Cent. Those of you that saw Get Smart should know that he’s a actually good supporting actor and should hopefully be able to do a good job in The Expendables. At least he’s big and strong, and can stand up to Stallone and Statham and Lundgren and Couture, who are also in this. Although most disagree, I’m relieved to know that 50 Cent won’t come close to ruining The Expendables.
“Okay, let me guess the next option will be Vin Diesel.”
50 Cent Replacing Forest Whitaker In Sylvester Stallone’s ‘The Expendables’…
Sylvester Stallone’s new movie “The Expendables” has added rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson to the cast to star in the upcoming flick which was expected to be starring actor Forest Whitaker.
Though some fans have expressed their anger and disappointment at the replacement of their favorite actor Whitaker who dropped out of the film, Stallone has stepped in to co-sign 50 Cent’s talent.
“I appreciate the incredible amount of work you’ve done on my behalf. Please tell the loyal followers to be positive not negative in their feedback,” stated Stallone.
Stallone goes on to state that he understands the anger of those over the casting of 50 Cent for his movie that he’ll be directing and producing.
“I am not self-destructive. 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,” Stallone adds [Reportedly via a letter posted on a fans board entitled StalloneZone.]
Sylvester Stallone goes on to speak about movie roles that he has been in and how some of the actors selected for movies such as Rocky was believed not to be the best choice by others but was a vastly improved casting.
“The point is, you either believe in me and the project, setting your personal feelings aside, or you take a darker approach, which really serves no purpose since your insight and suggestions and overall enthusiasm are a great thrill for me to behold everyday I sign on,” added Stallone.
“I wonder how the movie will turn out. What are your thoughts?”
