50 Cent has revealed he'd love a cameo role on Shameless.
The US rapper said he was won over by the Bafta-winning show's Mancunian mayhem and "real" characters, despite being baffled by some of the humour.
"I saw it when I was over in London last year - I just thought it was a very real show, with real people, and I'd be up for doing a cameo," he told The Sun.
The Get Rich Or Die Tryin' star went on: "The US like to portray the English as all drinking tea and speaking like the Queen, but this was real. It was really funny as well. I won't pretend I understood all the English humour, but I got more than enough to know its writers know their game.
"I was laughing out loud in my hotel room watching a show that I had never heard of. I have bought the DVDs since I've been back in the US."
Fiddy - whose real name is Curtis Jackson - reckons he would fit right into the cast, which includes David Threlfall (Frank Gallagher) and Gerard Kearns (Ian Gallagher).
"I am sure their writers could dream up some bad ass character for me," he added.
