G-Unit head 50 Cent has a new album in Animal Ambition on the way but that's not slowing him down from getting his acting chops going by joining the cast of upcoming flick, Spy.
According to reports, Curtis Jackson will share on-screen time with a slew of star-studded actors.
The movie, which at one point was titled Susan Cooper, centers on a CIA analyst, played by McCarthy, who goes into the field for the first time. The cast also includes Jude Law as a suave superspy and Jason Statham as an overconfident yet clumsy spy. Also in the cast are Rose Byrne, British comedienne Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale and Nia Long. (Hollywood Reporter)

Feig will direct the film from a script he wrote. Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing via their Chernin Entertainment banner along with Feig and Jessie Henderson via their Feigco Entertainment banner. The movie will shoot in April in Budapest. (Hollywood Reporter)
Recently, 50 talked about his upcoming Street King Immortal album giving fans a more personal vibe and explore uncharted territory.
"It'll be seamless. It's gonna ride right into it," Fif said referring to Street King Immortal. "Street King Immortal is more personal. It's way more personal than this record. Of course this one is about a portion of my actual experience, but that one is - I talk about things that I haven't talked about." (Complex TV)
Along with promising Animal Ambition and Street King Immortal would arrive before December 31, Fif recently hinted at some upcoming new music.
"There's actually two songs that'll be out on the 18," Fif said in an interview. "Kidd Kidd's on three of the songs. Three songs on the album. ... 'Irregular Heartbeat,' that's with Jadakiss. 'Chasing Paper' with Prodigy and Styles. So you'll get a chance to see them. ... After this Animal Ambition, I'm going to put out Street King Immortal." (This Is 50)
