50cent-031909AICN is reporting that Forest Whitaker has had to pull out of Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming action pic The Expendables due to conflicts with other projects.  Replacing the award-winning actor will be rapper 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson).  There’s been some backlash to the casting, which has prompted Sly himself to respond.  Here’s an excerpt via AICN:

A player is only as good as his coach. If a man can communicate in one medium, he can communicate in another if his strengths are brought out and he has the support of well-wishers. So, trust me, the change of Forest Whitaker to 50 Cent AKA Curtis Jackson is a good one.
