G-Unit's Tony Yayo recently chopped it up about his upcoming flick, S.W.A.T. 2 and promised plenty of action.
Portraying a villain, the "Talk of New York" shared some on-set details of the film.
"I'm just a bad guy. I'm from the streets, and I do what bad guys do. I play Carlos," he explained in an interview. "I'm definitely a bad guy. I don't have a problem playing a bad guy, 'cause everybody looks at me as that anyway. It was real easy. ... It's going to be a lot of shooting and stuff in the movie, it's great. There's real S.W.A.T. in the movie and they real S.W.A.T...I met this guy, I forget his name, he's the head S.W.A.T. guy for Detroit. He's directing the actors on what to do. It's S.W.A.T. in [the film who] obviously know what to do. It's amazing to meet real S.W.A.T. They are really in the movie. It gets crazy in the movie!" (MTV)
Reports of Yayo's involvement on the movie project landed online earlier this month.
The movie centers around a Los Angeles SWAT officer who is sent to train the Detroit SWAT team with new anti-terrorism techniques. As Lt. Paul Cutler attempt to train the new team he locks horns with his new captain, while encountering resistance from the team he is training. Enter Tony Yayo. A source confirmed with AllHipHop.com that the G-Unit member would be "taking hostages."

Ya later confirmed his role in the film.
"[This] is a real big, big look," he said in an interview. "It's a big movie. It's gonna be crazy." Yayo is currently shooting in Detroit, playing a villainous character named Carlos, where he will perform his own stunts. "I can't tell you everything, but I can tell you I'm definitely one of the bad guys," he shared. "I fit the part...It feels good to play the bad guy. And it's definitely gonna be me against the police." (XXL Mag)
Earlier this year, the rapper talked about beginning a movie career.
"And I'm looking to get into one of those movies, shouts-out 50, put me in one of those movies man! You cut my part in [Before I] Self Destruct, it's cool...I haven't had an album in five years, and financially, it's nothing to complain about... gives us the opportunity to go out and get money, a lot of n*ggas don't have that. Like, when you see the situations like Jay-Z and [Beanie] Sigel -- or Fat Joe and Remy Ma, I remember Remy used to complain, 'Yo, this n*gga's giving me a thousand dollars,' what kind of sh*t is that?"
