Rapper-turned-mogul 50 Cent has been keeping up with the challenging action scenes on The Expendables 4. Stunt coordinator Alan Ng told PopCulture.com that the rapper/actor was “very powerful and strong, like a tank,” so much so that he inadvertently injured a stunt performer while filming the fourth installment in the star-studded action franchise.
“He was actually so strong that in one of the scenes, he was supposed to barge into a stunt performer and his strength resulted in the guy going flying and dislocated his finger,” he said. “The guy and his finger are okay now, of course.”
Ng added, “50 Cent is very powerful and strong so that made it very easy to work with him.”
Following Ng’s interview, 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) shared a screenshot of the headline to Instagram, offering some additional context.
“I was 237 lbs in EXPENDABLES 4 I’m back down to 208,” Jackson wrote in the caption. “I still got a little POWER check out the movie.”
