Yesterday, rapper Nicki Minaj was cast in the animated sequel, 'Ice Age: Continental Drift.'

Even if you aren't a fan of Minaj, or rap as a whole, you can't deny that she is eccentric (see photo on right). While we still don't know what role she'll be playing in the film, we bet it will be something outside the box.

Minaj joins a long list of recording artists who have voiced characters in animated films, such as Katie Perry in the recent 'Smurfs' movie and Justin Timberlake in both 'Yogi Bear' and 'Shrek 3.'
