I know what you're probably thinking. Yes, Kate Upton is gorgeous, but does this Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model even act? Actually, Upton has two movies to her credit, having had a bit part in Brett Ratner's Tower Heist, as well as a role in the already forgotten Farrelly Bros. comedy The Three Stooges. But while I don't remember her from the first and never saw the second, I have to admit, Upton seems the perfect pick for this latest role Variety reports she's landed.

Penned by buzzed about screenwriter Melissa Stack, The Other Woman has been described as The First Wives Club for a younger audience. Cameron Diaz is set to star as a woman who is horrified to discover her gorgeous boyfriend (Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is actually married…and also cheating on her with a new, younger girlfriend. In this plucky dark comedy, this "other woman" decides to rat him out to his wife (Leslie Mann) so they can join forces in farcical revenge! Mwa ha ha!

You might have guessed from this setup which part Upton will play. And if you guessed the pretty younger model of gorgeous blond, you're right! Apparently this cheating cad has got a type. Of course Upton looks the part, being younger, bustier, and enviably hotter than her lovely female co-stars. But it's interesting because Upton also has a persona that is decidedly bubbly, not bitchy. So, it'll be interesting to see if she's just a bit part here or will get to score a bit of funny vengeance for herself.

The Other Woman is being helmed by The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes, who previously worked with Diaz on the 2009 tearjerker My Sister's Keeper. Production on this cheeky revenge comedy is expected to begin in New York late spring/early summer. So, we expect further casting confirmations to come soon. For now, Deadline reports Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney is in talks for a role in this comedy as well, but at this point no details have emerged about his could-be character.
