Rihanna is set to make her “acting” debut in the upcoming boardgame-based movie Battleship and may have already scored her next role: reports suggest that she may appear as the villain in the next The Fats and the Furious movie.
Rumor has it that Rihanna will play a femme fatale in the latest installment in the franchise alongside regulars Paul Walker and Vin Diesel, and will film her part in London, according to Britain’s The Sun.
A source tells the newspaper, “Rihanna impressed with her acting debut in Battleship. Writers think she’ll be perfect for the role. Her character has plenty of bite and doesn’t take any prisoners – just like her in real life. It’s a step up the ladder for her and could lead to bigger action roles.”
Hm. If Rihanna wants an easy acting career then yes, she should continue to take parts in action movies where acting is the last thing on anyone’s mind…but if she wants to carve out a serious film career then she should take on more unexpected roles in smaller movies.
