He did well enough in 8 Mile to warrant further interest as an actor for sure, i was honestly impressed with how natural he was, but it seems strange for a director to want a guy who's only played himself to star in a role that requires stepping outside of the comfort zone of telling ones own story.

Maybe if he's been taking some serious acting classes, i could entertain that idea... just seems like an odd choice, i think he made the right call with Damon.

I agree with what i think you mean about being typecast, he'd have to really grow his acting chops to keep most people from thinking "hey, thats eminem", instead of just buying into what he's doing as an actor.
