Been A While Since 8 Mile! Eminem Talks Acting

eminem on acting

You gonna return to the big screen, Em? Is 8 Mile 2 Southpaw still happening???

During a recent interview, Eminem opened up about making the transition from rapper to actor.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"I think Ice Cube said this one time; I think I heard him say this one time. If you can rap, if you can perform to the camera for singing and videos, it should be a pretty, fairly natural transition. I felt like having heard him say that was like, 'Oh, this may be fairly easy' — and it wasn't."

"It's a whole different thing, because you may be used to performing to the camera, but it's a whole different ball game when the music is off and you have lines that you need to say. It takes a minute to get used to."

Doesn't surprise us to hear that he's struggled with acting a bit, given the fact that Em has pretty much stayed away from the big screen since 8 Mile, aside from a cameo in Judd Apatow's Funny People.

Guess we'll see if Em decides to give the whole acting thing another shot! We'll keep an eye out for more Southpaw news…

What do U think about Slim Shady's thoughts on acting? Do U think he's ready to return to the big screen?
