Only a matter of days since rapper 50 Cent was selected to take over the role that had been destined for Forrest Whitaker in Sly Stallone’s Expendables movie, reports are circulating that Curtis will not be taking the role on and it is in fact being left in the hands of Terry Crews. Crews who is usually cast in more humorous roles in TV/movies such as White Girls, Everybody Hates Chris, Soul Plane and the Longest Yard is to play the role of Hale Caesar in the Stallone produced and directed movie about a group of men who head to South Africa in an attempt to over throw a dictator.
The reason for the casting change…too many people spoke out about Fif taking on the role and Rocky just didn’t know how to deal with the hate I guess. But when you are spending $60 million on a movie the last thing you want to be messing with is factors that can effect the box office.
