So, About That Time 50 Cent Auditioned For American Gangster...

This is the single greatest thing I've seen all day.

As you all are aware, the 2007 film American Gangster, directed by Ridley Scott, had rappers T.I., Common, and RZA alongside Oscar-winning actors Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, and Cuba Gooding Jr. Well, you could've almost added Curtis Jackson to that list, as he went out for the role of Huey Lucas, brother of Frank (who was portrayed by Denzel), witnessed by this unintentionally hilarious audition tape. Needless to say, the part went to Chiwetel Ejiofor instead.

    LMMMAAAAAOOOOOOO!!!!! Glad that guy got the part instead of him. He was great!!! Would've been even more funny seeing 50's head get smashed into a windshield by Denzel ANYWAY!

    I think, the reason He didn't get the part, was because He was going to steal the Spotlight on Denzel. He is too much,OVERQUALIFIED For that role, but One day, he'll find the perfect role And get himself an Oscar.

    He'd definitely be a distraction on screen with Denzel but he can't act for shit. glad the other guy got it

    Scene 3 was Oscar worthy! Only rivaled by Lil Mama's payphone scene in the VH1 TLC special.
