Nicki Minaj is reportedly set to make her movie debut alongside Brad Pitt in a film by acclaimed director Ridley Scott.

The rapper is reported by Vibe to have landed a big role in The Counselor - which will also star Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, Michael Fassbender and Rosie Perez.

Minaj is a graduate of the LaGuardia School Of Music & Performing Arts - so had acting training before she made it big in the music biz.
