Morning Buzz: Rihanna boards the ‘Battleship’ + Daniel Craig confirmed for ‘Dragon Tattoo’

Musicians turned actors has always been commonplace in Tinseltown, but lately the trend has taken a life of its own. Nowadays untrained musicians are being cast in roles–due mainly to popularity— in sacrifice for quality that could be found in a well-trained actor.  Insert Rihanna, the Grammy award-winning songstress (lightly used term), who’s now the latest addition to the trend.

The ‘Umbrella’ singer will join the cast of the upcoming ‘Battleship’ movie in a role that will mark her feature film debut. (Bring It On: All or Nothing doesn’t count) No word yet on what part the song bird will play, but I’m sure it will be something that involves a killer wardrobe.

In other news….

Making the most of his time, while MGM gets their crap together, Daniel Craig has inked a deal to work with David Fincher on ‘The Girl With Dragon Tattoo’, plus the film’s imminent sequels. Craig will portray journalist Mikael Blomkvist, and although there’s been much speculation on who will play “The Girl”,  Natalie Portman took her name out of the conversation this weekend at Comic-Con citing that she “hadn’t been approached.”

Filming is scheduled to begin in December, so there’s plenty of time to find the perfect leading lady.
