We need a comeback!
The man born Marshall Mathers is one multi-faceted character. He can astound you with his verbose wordplay, or his tongue-twisting delivery. He can rap circles around any of your favorite emcees and lap them twice with little difficulty. Interestingly enough, people tend to undermine Eminem’s acting prowess, but we’re absolutely ready for him to get back in front of the camera.
‘8 Mile’ was damn near perfect
Even though the film was autobiographical in certain aspects pertaining to Eminem’s life, he finessed the role so well. With the movie serving as his acting debut, he exudes the charisma needed to tap into B.Rabbit’s inner demons and vulnerabilities. That’s not easy to do for any actor, especially a rapper segueing into acting for the first time.
Challenges His Contemporaries
Currently, 50 Cent is shining radiantly as the antagonist on the critically-acclaimed show Power. Why not step up to the plate and have fun with acting and see how high you can ascend on the totem pole? Em is very meticulous about making certain moves unless he’s 100% behind it. So it would take something mind-blowing for him to consider jumping aboard.
Challenges Past Rappers-Actors
The ones who definitely proved they were double threats in both rap and acting in the 90s and early 2000s included the likes of Tupac Shakur, Will Smith, Ice Cube, Mos Def, Ice-T and more. We think Em does have the potential to align himself along these guys if he continues to pursue more roles. It’s all about taking chances.
