Second Chances: 50 Cent Casts Mo’Nique In Recurring ‘BMF’ Role
In March, 50 Cent posted on his Instagram account that he saw the comedian and actress perform during Super Bowl Weekend and gave her high praise. He suggested to his followers that they need to check Mo’Nique out and advocated for Hollywood to re-open the door they had closed behind her years ago.
This week, the former Curtis Jackson took to his Instagram profile to officially announce that Mo’Nique will play a vital role in the series.
