50 Cent Replacing Forest Whitaker In Sylvester Stallone’s ‘The Expendables’
Sylvester Stallone’s new movie “The Expendables” has added rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson to the cast to star in the upcoming flick which was expected to be starring actor Forest Whitaker.
Though some fans have expressed their anger and disappointment at the replacement of their favorite actor Whitaker who dropped out of the film, Stallone has stepped in to co-sign 50 Cent’s talent.
“I appreciate the incredible amount of work you’ve done on my behalf. Please tell the loyal followers to be positive not negative in their feedback,” stated Stallone.
Stallone goes on to state that he understands the anger of those over the casting of 50 Cent for his movie that he’ll be directing and producing.
“I am not self-destructive. The anger of the casting of 50 Cent is understandable, but not fair. A player is only as good as his coach. If a man can communicate in one medium, he can communicate in another if his strengths are brought out and he has the support of well-wishers. So, trust me, the change of Forest Whitaker to 50 Cent AKA Curtis Jackson is a good one,” Stallone adds reportedly via a letter posted on a fans board entitled StalloneZone.
Sylvester Stallone goes on to speak about movie roles that he has been in and how some of the actors selected for movies such as Rocky was believed not to be the best choice by others but was a vastly improved casting.
“The point is, you either believe in me and the project, setting your personal feelings aside, or you take a darker approach, which really serves no purpose since your insight and suggestions and overall enthusiasm are a great thrill for me to behold everyday I sign on,” added Stallone.
