#Rihanna lands KEY role on #BatesMotel! [details]

Rihanna has KICKED BUTT on the charts and the SILVERSCREEN and on countless FASHION MAGS and now she is coming to the SMALL SCREEN.  It was REVEALED at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego that Ms. Fenty had landed a KEY role on A&E's 'Bates Motel'!

Producers of A&E’s ‘Bates Motel’ announced that Rihanna will join the show as Marion Crane, the victim in the famous shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho!!

via Variety:

The producers reportedly sought Rihanna out for the role after she professed she was a fan of the show in a Vanity Fair profile, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Rihanna confirmed the casting in a pre-recorded video sent to the San Diego event. Executive Producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin addressed the casting as well:

“We wanted to thrust the iconic role into a contemporary spotlight and redefine it in a meaningful and exciting new way. We also heard Rihanna was a fan of the show, and we were huge fans of hers, so it was the perfect collision of creativity and fate.”

While the character ultimately meets her end in the previous telling of the story, it doesn't mean she will here. Even if she does, I imagine there will be a few new wrinkles in Cuse and Ehrin's version.

The FINAL season- SEASON 5 is slated for a 2017 release!
