Queens rapper turned music mogul 50 Cent has a new acting gig! The “Smoke” rapper has joined the cast of Spy, Paul Feig‘s spy comedy starring Melissa McCarthy.

The movie centers on a CIA analyst, which is played by McCarthy, who goes into the field for the first time.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting “The cast also includes Jude Law as a suave superspy and Jason Statham as an overconfident yet clumsy spy. Also in the cast are Rose Byrne, British comedienne Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale and Nia Long. It is unclear how Jackson figures into the plot, but he will play himself“.

Feig wrote the script and will direct the film. Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing the film via their Chernin Entertainment banner along with Feig and Jessie Henderson via their Feigco Entertainment banner.

The film goes into production this month in Budapest.

50 Cent‘s Animal Ambition arrives June 3rd.
