[artist id="860639"]50 Cent[/artist] has invaded Hollywood with a string of roles alongside Tinseltown royalty like Al Pacino and Robert De Niro (“Righteous Kill”) and leading-man-in-the-making Chace Crawford (“Twelve”).

We all know that the G-Unit General can make a hit, but after he and producer Randall Emmett inked a reported $200 million deal to launch Cheetah Films, don’t be surprised if the rapper’s future lies in making fans sit down to watch him on the big screen instead of hitting the dance floor.

He hasn’t left New York for the West Coast just yet, but Terrence Howard said 50 is a more than capable actor. The two worked together on Fif’s first film, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’.” And according to the veteran actor (“Hustle & Flow,” “Crash,” “Ray”), he actually learned more from 50 than the other way around.

“One of the things that I learned, the hardest thing to do is be still,” Howard explained. “When you don’t know what to do, be still. He mastered that. And therefore, when he jumped forward and has something to say, he spoke the truth with it. That’s a genius. That’s what makes great film work. He was there from the beginning. I actually learned more from watching him, ’cause he taught me to be still.”

In addition to his film ventures and wrapping his next album , 50 Cent recently joined Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the Sundance Film Festival for the launch of the boxer’s Mayweather Productions .
