50 Cent in Get Rich or Die Tryin’

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ was a better album than it was a film (because like, “High All the Time” is a certified all-timer), and that’s probably because 50 Cent’s a better rapper than he is an actor. Sure, 50 Cent only has one acting face—usually, it’s a blank-eyed stare—but he still manages to pull off his first major acting role, mostly because Get Rich or Die Tryin’ is essentially about how he went from rags to, uh, being a Vitaminwater executive.
