IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson to talk about his work on Freelancers. The hip-hop artist/actor discussed his new movie, why he likes his character, how he prepared for his role, reuniting with Robert De Niro, the Oscar-winners approach, working with Forest Whitaker, shooting in his old neighborhood, and why he thinks rappers/hip-hop artists make such good actors.
