*Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has joined the cast of “Spy,” director Paul Feig’s comedy starring Melissa McCarthy.
The actress plays a CIA analyst 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.
It is unclear how 50 figures into the plot, but he will play himself, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Feig will direct the film from a script he wrote. Production till take place this month in Budapest.
50 appeared in last year’s “Escape Plan” with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and just wrapped “The Prince,” a crime picture starring Bruce Willis and John Cusack.
