The casting news comes nearly two months after Power producer and rapper 50 Cent promised to put Mo'Nique "back on" after years of allegedly being "blackballed" in the industry

50 took to Instagram to celebrate, sharing a video of Mo’Nique in costume. 

"My name is Goldie, you know who the f*ck I am," the actress says to the camera with a wink. 50 cheered in the caption, writing, "Guess who I got in BMF this season GOLDIE! I don’t miss, THE UNDER DOG’s BACK ON TOP. @therealmoworldwide."

After winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2010 for her critically acclaimed performance in Precious, Mo'Nique made headlines with her claims of being blacklisted in HollywoodShe named Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, and close friend Lee Daniels as the main culprits.

In March, 50 urged Winfrey and Perry to apologize to the Parkers actress for their alleged role in the apparent blackballing. The rapper later shared that he'd spoken with the Madea filmmaker, who revealed that he "never told anyone" not to hire Mo'Nique and that he was excited that 50 was getting the chance to work with her.

Not long after that, Mo'Nique and Daniels put their years-long feud to rest. In April, the two reunited onstage during the comedian's Mo'Nique and Friends: April Fools Day With the Queen of Comedy show in Staten Island, New York.

"I am so sorry for hurting you in any way that I did. She was my best friend, my best friend. Y'all think that Precious was just— that was God working, through both of us. And we're going to f--king do it again!" Daniels told Mo'Nique, according to People.

The two then exchanged "I love you"s as the audience cheered.

The reunion came along with the news that the duo is officially working together again on an upcoming film. Hours before Saturday's show, Deadline reported that Mo'Nique is replacing Octavia Spencer in Daniels' new movie, Demon House, after Spencer had a scheduling conflict with her Apple TV+ television series, Truth Be Told.
