Rapper 50 cent has now joined the BIG TIME club, thanks to his new guest staring role on The Finder, a spin off of FOX’s Bones. David Boreanaz, the star of Bones will direct the episode that features 50 cent in a role he should be comfortable playing, considering it hits close to home. His character Big Blade is described as a ruthlessly successful Hip Hop executive who is relentless in his quest to recover the lost tracks belonging to a rap artist who dies suddenly and who was also under his music label.
The new show headlined by actor Geoff Stults will debut in January in the 9/8c time slot. But the episode arch with 50 cent won’t begin until February.
It is definitely refreshing to see rappers who are known for their irresistible hooks and edgy wordplay prove their versatility by exercising their acting chops.
Kid Cudi is doing is thing on HBO’s How To Make It In America and Mos Def was quite impressive in his short-lived role on Showtime’s hit Dexter.
Hopefully 50 cent won’t disappoint. Will you be watching?
