Cardi B will soon be making her big screen acting debut, as she will be appearing in a film with none other than Jennifer Lopez!
The Bodak Yellow rapper will play the part of an “exotic dancer” in the movie Hustlers, which already has an all-star cast attached to it.
Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Mercedes Ruehl, and even Riverdale beauty Lili Reinhart are all on board – how exciting is that?
We’re not sure about the other actresses, but Cardi B already has an advantage, as she will be able to draw on her own past experience as a stripper. We bet all of the other ladies will be asking her for advice and inspiration!

“There is no other actor who could embody this raw and dynamic character with such complexity, humanity and intelligence,” director Lorene Scafaria said.
“It’s always been her. She’s f–king Jennifer Lopez.”
No arguments there!
According to reports, the plot of the movie is based on a true story first published in New York Magazine, about a group of adult entertainers who scammed the men they once serviced.
The movie is due to begin filming in New York from tomorrow (March 22) so keep your eyes peeled if you happen to be visiting the Big Apple. We have a feeling that Cardi B’s loud OTT personality and signature catchphrases might just give their location away…
