50 Cent accidentally dislocated the finger of a stuntman while playing the role of Easy Day on the new action film Expend4bles, the fourth installment of The Expendables series.
The movie’s stunt coordinator Alan Ng, while speaking about working with the film’s big names on action sequences, told PopCulture.com that the injury occurred after the actor/musical artist, 48, and stuntman collided.
’50 Cent is very powerful and strong so that made it very easy to work with him,’ Ng told the outlet. ’50 Cent is very powerful and strong, so he’s like a tank.
‘He was actually so strong that in one of the scenes, he was supposed to barge into a stunt performer and his strength resulted in the guy going flying and dislocated his finger.’
Ng said said that the stuntman ‘and his finger are ok now of course.’
