Rita Ora Earns Fast and the Furious Role
The singer beat out Rihanna for the part in the 2013 film
Rita Ora will star in the sixth installment of the Fast and the Furious series, aptly titled, The Fast and The Furious 6. Even IMDB is stumped as to how this thing hasn’t died yet, but instead managed to rake in more and more cash. The 2013 film will be Ms. Ora’s big screen debut—unless you caught her in the 2004 U.K. crime flick, Spivs—and her unnamed character is a role apparently once coveted by none other than Rihanna. According to the U.K.’s The Sun, Ora charmed her way through auditions enough to leave casting directors comfortable offering her the part instead of the nomadic RiRi.
