At this point, answering, “Who isn’t going to be in Barbershop 3?” might be an easier task than to follow all the casting. But we have a new employee in the beauty shop: Barbie.
Rapper Nicki Minaj has joined the cast of the Ice Cube-led film, EW has confirmed. Variety first reported her addition. Minaj will play a hairdresser named Draya, presumably an employee under Regina Hall’s character. It’s the second live-action role for Minaj, who was in 2014’s The Other Woman. Her feature film debut came as a voice in Ice Age: Continental Drift as a snotty teenage mammoth who followed Drake’s wooly counterpart along. No word yet if Draya will exclaim, “I’M A MOTHERF—ING BARBER” during the film.
