Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl and Victoria's Secret model Brooklyn Decker will star as Taylor Kitsch's love interest Sam in the upcoming film Battleship, which will be based on the Hasbro game of the same name, according to Latino Review. Famous singer Rihanna and SAG-nominated True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard have also nabbed roles in the film.
Is this a good casting decision? Well, if the role calls for an attractive female, the casting decision is at least somewhat accurate, as Decker is extremely gorgeous. Famous females such as Kim Basinger, Julia Roberts, and even the legendary Marilyn Monroe were models before making the transition to acting, and have since received critical acclaim for their performances. However, other models such as Cindy Crawford had a really difficult transition to screen.
So, will Decker be the next Julia Roberts or the next Cindy Crawford? At this point it's too hard to tell. We don't know a whole lot about the film itself right now, but something tells me that this won't exactly be a great role to show acting range if she actually has any. However, if it's not an absolutely terrible film, it could easily be Decker's stepping stone to serious roles if she decides to pursue a full-fledged acting career.
And even if it is a terrible film, at least this casting call won't hinder the ability to have fun looking at the cast. The film is set to come out on May 18, 2012.
