Battleship: Rihanna's Acting Debut!

Rihanna has signed up to play the female lead in the upcoming action-adventure Battleship, in theaters May 2012.

The 22-year-old Barbadian singer will star alongside on-screen brothers Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood).

The flick, which will be helmed by actor/director Peter Berg, is based on the adaptation of Hasbro’s naval combat board game.

Alex will play a straight and narrow naval officer while Taylor will be the wildly spirited naval officer who idolizes his brother. Battleship is to begin shooting on Aug. 30 in Hawaii.

Soooooooooo exciting!!!

Cool! Good for Rihanna. She is doing exactly what she wants to do. She has been talking about getting into acting for a long time. She’ll be good.

# 6

Tom Arnold and Rihanna?

# 7

Poor Taylor and ASkars.
They deserve better.

# 8

Is she playing one of the aliens?

# 9

ugly chick.

Overexposed ho.

She should play a Klingon in one of the Star Trek remakes.

Hope she gets a new before filming starts.

Damn. I was actually excited for this movie before.

they should have just hired someone who can act.

The cast gets shittier and shittier.

I’m sorry, but what? I mean I was on board with Taylor and Alex, they actually seem to make sense. But Rihanna? Um, no thanks. It’s bad enough Tom Arnold is there and that this is based off of a board game, but Rihanna, who, I’m sorry, you can tell is not going to be some great actress, just makes this seem cheap and uninteresting.

HAhahaaaa..really? you’ve got to be kidding, rihanna? fail.

She’s cute but the casting is disappointing.
Lots of good actresses out there.




At least she’s not singing.
