50 Cent Auditions for Role of Han Solo on ‘Conan’
It's no secret that 50 Cent has some acting chops. Recently, the New York rapper/actor/businessman appeared on Conan to audition for the role of Han Solo in hilarious fashion.
Fif' tried out for the role alongside other actors Adam Sandler, Will Arnett, Jodie Foster, Melissa McCarthy, Kumail Nanjiani and Jeff Goldblum. The Get Rich Or Die Tryin' artist garners a bunch of laughs in his audition by failing to hold his weapon the right way. Unfortunately, 50 didn't ultimately obtain the Star Wars role.
The Power of the Dollar rapper is becoming somewhat of a regular on Conan. In case you missed it, be sure to check out his interview on the show from a few weeks back. Throughout the conversation, 50 and O'Brien discuss Trump's presidential campaign and the possibility of Kanye West running for commander-in-chief in 2020.
50 tells Conan “I like the idea of him running,” to which the TV host replies, “You don’t think Kanye would make a great president.” Fif responds, “I just – that’s a lot of responsibility. It’s the same thing with Trump.” O’Brien then says, “You think there’s really no difference between Kanye running and Trump running, is what you’re pretty much saying.” 50 replies, “I am saying that.”
Of course, 50 has appeared in a number of films and now has his own hit TV show, Power. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to view an exclusive interview with 50, in which he talks about his popular Starz Network program.
