Nicki Minaj is in final talks to make her movie debut opposite Cameron Diaz in a new Nick Cassavetes comedy. The R&B star will play the actress’ opinionated assistant in The Other Woman, which will also feature Leslie Mann, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kate Upton. In the film, Diaz’s character teams up with the wife of her boyfriend when she discovers he’s married – and the two women plot revenge.
She wouldn’t be the first star to go from hip hop to Hollywood. Others including Ludacris, 50 Cent, Diddy, and of course, Will Smith have made the successful transition.
Meanwhile, Minaj’s stint as a judge on American Idol may be in jeopardy as rumors swirl that she and fellow judges including Mariah Carey may be replaced next season after sagging ratings.
