#15. 50 Cent in 'Get Rich or Die Tryin''

50 Cent's film debut is a semi-autobiographical crime drama about a young boy who grows up to be a drug dealer after his mother is brutally murdered. But like many a kid from the hood, he dreams of becoming a rapper as a means of escaping his violent existence. Curtis Jackson nailed his subdued, honest portrayal of a complicated character and kicked off a film career that's still going strong today. Below, watch the film's NSFW final confrontation, but be warned—if you haven't seen the movie, there are spoilers.
