*50 Cent has been trying new things lately, including soap operas. Yes, he is set to appear on the BBC soap opera “EastEnders.”
The rapper is actually a fan of the drama series and will appear in one episode of the program. His role is unknown at this point; the talk is that he could play himself or some criminal mastermind, or even some secret lover.
“I really wanted Peggy [Mitchell] to throw me out of her pub, but I didn’t get it organized quick enough and it’s too late now,” he joked, referencing the departure of the show’s longtime star, Barbara Windsor. “I’ve performed with Eminem and Justin Timberlake, acted with De Niro and Pacino, had a guest spot on ‘The Simpsons’ – in the U.S. a sign that you’ve made it to the very top, but I can’t fulfill my biggest showbiz dream.”
Fifty’s love for the show was sparked when Manchester United soccer team player Rio Ferdinand introduced it to him.
