The self-proclaimed, Black Barbie, Nikki Minaj will begin filming her first movie role this summer in New York. A graduate of LaGuardia High school for the Visual and Performing Arts, Minaj has made it no secret that acting is her first love. The Trinidad native has reportedly been looking to make her feature film debut on the big screen for some time, but was just waiting for the right project.
Well it seems this is it! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nicki will be going back to her first love of acting in a comedy titled The Other Woman.
Directed by Nick Cassavetes, the film stars Cameron Diaz as a woman who finds out that she is “the other woman” in an affair. She teams up with the wife (Leslie Mann) to get revenge on the cheater( Nikolaj Coster-Waldau0). Minaj will play Diaz’s opinionated assistant at a law firm, a woman on her third marriage.
The Other Woman would mark Minaj’s first appearance in a live-action movie. The rapper previously took on a voice role in computer-animated smash Ice Age: Continental Drift, which came out last summer (2012). She is also currently appearing as a judge on American Idol.
