Official Trailer for 50 Cent's Touching Football Drama 'All Things Fall Apart'


The 'Candy Shop' rapper plays Deon, a successful high school football player who is diagnosed with cancer on his way to reach his dream as a professional athlete.

The first official trailer for Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson's upcoming football drama "All Things Fall Apart" has been debuted. Making its way out via Yahoo! Movies, the trailer features the rapper starring as Deon, a high school football player who is diagnosed with fatal cancer while on his way to become a star. The video is filled with plenty of tear-jerking scenes as Deon struggles to reach his dream despite his health scare.

To portray Deon, 50 Cent reportedly went on a liquid diet and lost a whopping 54 lbs. The "In da Club" rapper ditches his usual hunky look and transforms into a very skinny man in the trailer as he plays the sick Deon. He shows off his vulnerable side as he's being left alone by his friends.

Deon is a promising Michigan football running back who dreams of one day getting drafted by the Miami Dolphins. A well-liked young man whose winning disposition makes him a hit with just about everybody (especially the girls), Deon has a line on a Heisman Trophy until he one day collapses in the locker room following a big win.

The diagnosis is cancer, and Deon's blessed life comes crashing down around him as he undergoes chemotherapy that makes him lose his hair and over 60 lbs of muscle, leaving him an emaciated shadow of his former self.

In addition to tackling the lead role, 50 Cent co-wrote and co-produced "All Things Fall Apart". Joining him in the cast ensemble are Ray Liotta, Lynn Whitfield and Mario Van Peebles, who also serves behind the lens. The drama, which was screened on BET last December, will open in the U.S. theaters on February 14.
