50 Cent's Movie 'All Things Fall Apart' To Premiere On BET Tonight December 3

 

Fans will get the chance to see 50 Cent's most dramatic role as an actor tonight when his film "All Things Fall Apart" premiere's on BET as part of Black Star Cinema.

 

In the movie 50 plays a college football star who receives devastating news when he is diagnosed with cancer. To accurately portray the role, Fif lost more than 50 pounds. The weight loss drastically changed the rapper/actor's appearance and showed his ability to adapt to any role. He drew praise from the movie's director Mario Van Peebles for his commitment and acting ability.

 

Everyone has a different skill set that takes us inside his or her characters and 50 Cent’s got good timing. I think he really held his own against actors like Ray Liotta, Lynn Whitfield and myself — we’ve all been in the game for awhile,” Van Peebles told BET.com back in September. “He never gave up. 50 was ready and I really worked him all the way. He really has a natural sense for acting. I had to lose weight — about 20 pounds when I played Malcolm X in Ali, but 50 Cent was losing so much weight I started calling him twenty-five cents. He lost a lot of weight to do the role," Van Peebles continued. "And we just timed it out so that 50 could slowly add the weight back on when we would shoot certain scenes. He was dedicated, incredibly focused and took it really seriously."

 

In a May 2010 interview with MTV, 50 explained why he was so committed to the role.

 

"I had a friend of mine who actually experienced cancer, and it's what motivated me to write this screenplay," 50 said. "You don't have to make everything personal, but that project was. That's why I committed to playing a role where I lost 54 pounds. I had to discipline myself enough until I achieved it but ... I got it."

 

"All Things Fall Apart" will be shown Saturday December 3 on BET at 9:30P/8:30C. The film has also been picked up by Image Entertainment and will be released to theaters in early 2012.
