Singer and ‘American Idol’ judge Nicki Minaj has been cast as an “opinionated assistant” in the film ‘The Other Woman.’
Her debut big screen role is a comedy centered on a man engaged in multiple affairs who underestimates his lovers. When one of them realizes she is not her boyfriend’s primary lover, she teams up with his wife to plot revenge.
Nicki’s high profile co-stars include Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton.
The project will be directed by Nick Cassavetes of ‘The Notebook’ fame, with filming set to begin in May 2013. The Trinidadian-born rapper will play a law firm assistant.
Minaj, 30, continues to dispute claims that her music lyrics imply she is bisexual. She said in a recent Vibe interview: “I just embrace all people of all lifestyles and I don’t tell them they are bad people. But I feel like people always wanna define me and I don’t wanna be defined.”
