Eminem To Guest Star As White Boy Rick In 50 Cent's 'BMF' TV Series

50 Cent and Eminem are back at it again. According to sources,

50 has enlisted his close friend Em for a role in his

upcoming Black Mafia Family series coming to STARZ. The 8

Mile actor is reportedly set to star as famed FBI informant Rick

“White Boy Rick” Wershe.

 

“I’m honored and appreciative of my good friend Em for

supporting my new show BMF,” 50 Cent relayed in a statement.

“We couldn’t do a show based in Detroit without incorporating the

legend that is Eminem.”

 

Eminem will be making a guest appearance on the show for one

episode as White Boy Rick (born Rick Wershe Jr.). For those

unfamiliar, Rick was a teenage drug dealer growing up on

Detroit’s East Side.

 

He was arrested by the FBI by the time he was 17 for cocaine

possession and sentenced to life in prison. White Boy Rick was

eventually paroled and released in 2020 after 32 years behind bars.

His story was also turned into a 2018 blockbuster

starring Matthew McConaughey. White Boy Rick recently filed a

hefty lawsuit against the FBI seeking $100 million in damages.

 

Filmed in Atlanta and Detroit, Black Mafia Family is set to debut

on STARZ on September 26. The rest of the cast includes Snoop

Dogg, who will play a pastor, LaLa Anthony, Serayah and more.

Starz should be named the 50 Cent Network.
