Gerard Butler had fun shooting “Den of Thieves” with 50 Cent, and says the rapper-actor is funny and sweet.”50 Cent (given name Curtis Jackson) is a very bubbly kind of a person. He’s such a funny and a sweet guy and is always smiling,” Butler said.

50 Cent will be seen as Enson in the crime saga, set in Los Angeles, by Christian Gudegast. “Den of Thieves” follows the intersecting and connected lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff’s department and the state’s most successful bank robbery crew.

On 50 Cent’s role, Butler said, “With his character Enson, he takes the gravitas that he has and lets it shine and when he speaks, it’s crazy. During the read through, he barely raised his voice but when he was talking, you don’t listen to anyone in the room more than you listen to him.When he said something, he meant something and that’s who he is. He’s a powerful and a quiet person so when he says he will back you up, he means it.”
