Rihanna seems to be trying to get in on more acting parts for movies. She did Battleship, and she was rumored to be the star for a remake of The Last Dragon. But now, according to Star Pulse, Rihanna is rumored to play a more serious role...as Josephine Baker. Wait, wasn't there a biopic years ago with Lynn Whitfield? Maybe this is a way for today's generation to learn of the black icons from back then, with using younger stars, such as Rihanna.
