Rapper/Actor/Boxing Promoter 50 Cent Now Producing TV Show

Fif had a free hour on Fridays, so he figured he'd make a TV show

Because he's not busy enough rapping, acting, earning boxing promoter stripes and beefing with everyone from Floyd Mayweather to Chief Keef, 50 Cent is now working on a cable TV drama for Starz.

Entitled Power, the hour-long series is about a "nightclub owner who skirts the line between legitimacy and criminality." (That's option #17 when scripting a cable TV pilot.)

Fif is pairing with a writer whose credits include The Good Wife and The Bernie Mac Show as well as two of the guys he worked with on Freelancers, the roundly ignored film he made with Robert De Niro earlier this year. 50 will serve as exec producer on Power, which hasn't yet begun production. But if we're lucky, this means he'll start beefing with people in the cable TV world (RuPaul? Andy Cohen?!) just to mix things up in his life.

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
