Rihanna Lands New Movie Role

Rihanna’s acting debut in “Battleship” may have gone up in flames stateside, but that doesn’t mean she’s giving up her Hollywood dreams.

Aside from already landing a role in the upcoming Seth Rogen comedy “The End of the World” and a rumored role in the sixth installment of “The Fast and the Furious,” the pop starlet has also just signed on to voice the lead character in the upcoming animated comedy “Happy Smekday.”

And though she clearly won’t be getting any face time, she will be reaping a big payday. According to Hollywood Happenings, RiRi will pull down a cool 7 million dollars for doing what she does every day… talking.

As for her co-star, The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parson, he’s set to collect a cool 12 million.



  1. Battleship still made a lot of money. The movie got it’s money back for the production cost. I think rihanna has a lot of potential as an actress. I think she will be a better actress than beyonce. I love beyonce, her music but not her acting.

  2. Yes, it did. It was huge overseas and actually broke quite a few records. Can’t understand why it failed in the US.

  3. I agree I saw it and she actually did a decent job in her role. She’s quite natural belive it or not.

  4. Congrats. Glad to see more black woman animation films and i think it has a lot to do with Anika Noni Rose in the “Princess of the Frog”. Now with Rihanna doing this movie and Beyonce playing the evil Queen Tara in her new movie. I think we will see more black actresses in cartoon films. Hopefully more full time actress’s and not singers, but we can’t always have it our way.
