But 50 Cent Will Not Be in Lineup

  RAPPER 50 Cent -- who's here in Toronto filming the movie Get Rich Or Die Tryin' -- cancelled his booking at the Philadelphia leg of Live 8 because of his film commitments.

And that's unlikely to change if there's a Live 8 concert here.

An L.A. spokesman for the artist said, "It's more a matter of his being in production, than which city he's in. I've already had a few phonecalls about that, and that's the way it sits."

Karen Pidgurski, the unit publicist in Toronto for Get Rich or Die Tryin', said yesterday, "We've got an incredibly heavy-duty schedule, and we'll be shooting every day just to get done in time with his tour coming up."
