The video for Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie” was set to begin shooting on Tuesday. But now it sounds like the duo might be getting help dramatizing the melancholic ballad from Megan Fox and “Lost” star Dominic Monaghan later this week.
“First choice: Charlie from Lost. Dom, let’s do this,” director Joseph Kahn tweeted on Sunday, after announcing the video shoot. And a source told E! Online that Fox would be joining the cast for some “intense” and steamy scenes with Monaghan. A representative for Kahn had not responded to MTV News’ request for comment at press time.
Kahn has won a Grammy and two VMAs for his videos with Eminem. And though he’s never shot a music video with Rihanna, he clarified on Twitter that this isn’t their first time working together. “2nd with Rihanna (did a Covergirl commercial with her),” he wrote.
“Love the Way You Lie” is #1 on the new Ultimate Chart, which takes into account Internet popularity as well as radio play and sales. Even before its success, Rihanna expressed her pride over the effort.
“It’s really beautiful, and it really stands out,” she said. “It’s a really unique record. I’m really excited about it.”
