An interesting movie tidbit hit the newswire today as the lead role in Elysium played by Matt Damon, could have been for Eminem.
Wired is reporting that Matt Damon was the third choice for the lead as Eminem was first, followed by Die Antwoord's Ninja. Em clearly ended up declining the role, as the report cites he only would have said yes if the filming took place in his (now-bankrupt :-/) hometown of Detroit.
If Em ever decides to go back to the big screen, I hope it'll be as big of a smash as 8 Mile (and he was a great actor in it, too.) #Top5FavoriteMovies
