Movies & TV

8 Mile (2002)

This is Eminem's debut acting performance. He plays a struggling white rapper from Detroit. (Okay, okay, so it's not method acting, but director Curtis Hanson gets a great performance out of a first-time actor and convincingly recreates the Detroit underground hip-hop scene in the mid-1990s.)

The Slim Shady Show (2001)

A series of Internet videos from 2001 that follow Eminem and his alter-egos, Slim Shady, Marshal Mathers, and Ken Kaniff. Eminem did the voices for the primary characters, and the videos were later released on DVD. The Slim Shady Show was not a full sitcom, as each episode was only 5 minutes long and most likely produced due to Eminem's wave of popularity at the time.
