Mekhi Phifer Wasn’t Interested In ‘8 Mile’ At First

The Ru Report caught up with ‘8 Mile’ star Mekhi Phifer and asked him how he ended up on the box office smash. “When I first heard about it, I wasn’t that interested,” he admits. “I never heard of expressing interest in doing films. I thought maybe he was doing the movie because of his popularity and I didn’t want to be a part of that. I didn’t want to be a part of something that just because he’s a rapper and he sold X amount of millions of records that he’s doing a movie. It’s going to be his movie, he’s going to have to carry the movie so I had to be in something that’s going to be remembered and appreciated, so I wanted to make sure that was going to happen. But I went down there, met him, we read together, we talked and I just had love for him. I felt his passion.”
