Nicole Scherzinger may be best known to the MTV audience as the lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls, but the future "X-Factor" host is dipping her toes into the world of acting with a role in “Men in Black 3.”
Speaking to Crave Online, Scherzinger said working on “MIB” was “amazing.” “I have a cameo and I open the movie,” she said. “So it was an honor to work with Barry Sonnenfeld, the director, and Jemaine Clement who’s my costar. I actually went to college for theater so it’s nice to be able to utilize some of those chops finally. I really want to get back into a film and acting.”
When asked about how her theater training works for a movie, she replied, “It’s crazy to combine the two worlds of the stage, theater and theatrical training to something on such a grand scale. It doesn’t get any bigger than this with movies like this. Honestly, not only did my theater training with my background in acting with that, but my stage training because I had to create a whole other character for this role. In order to do that I had to pull from the rock star inside of me and create this whole diva, like this whole action bad girl kind of character.”
If she’s part of “Men in Black,” does that make her character a “Woman in Black?” After being asked this, she answered cheekily, “She’s actually a woman in black and leather. A woman in black leather actually. I remembered when I was doing a lot of the scenes. In some of the scenes I’m walking and you’ll see with some serious hardcore rocket launcher.”
