It looks like Rihanna has caught the acting bug!

The "Talk That Talk" artist has landed another big acting role, this time in the sixth instalment of The Fast and the Furious franchise.

Hot cars, hot girls and Rihanna. Yes, this casting news definitely makes sense.

But it's more than the Bajan songstress's immaculate and stunning looks that have landed her the a role — it's her great acting talent.

“Rihanna impressed with her acting debut in Battleship. Writers think she’ll be perfect for the role. Her character has plenty of bite and doesn’t take any prisoners — just like her in real life," says a source to The Sun. "It’s a step up the ladder for her and could lead to bigger action roles.”

Rihanna will play a villain in the movie, which begins filming in England as early as next month. The 23-year-old musician says that dabbling in acting while enjoying her full-fledged music career allows her to try everything — if only once.

“I want to try being more vulnerable, but I want to try different things," says Rihanna. "I don’t want to stick to one type of role.”
