Someone must really hate 50 right now, someone got their hands on an old audition tape for “American Gangster” the 2007 film that starred Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe. Curtis wasn’t trying out for their roles: He wanted the part that eventually went to Chiwetel Ejiofor, a.k.a. the actor who stars in “12 Years A Slave”.
This is him below…. This is who they chose instead of 50. I know he had to be salty.. My favorite part about this was was the lady on the other side of the camera. Something about her voice and those lines just didn’t seem to go together, but that made it funny.
